K.G.F 2 actor, Yash also known as 'Rocky Bhai' by his fans, is a bus driver's son. He has made it big in the film industry without a godfather. People have seen the historic success of his movies, K.G.F: Chapter 1 and K.G.F: Chapter 2, breaking several records worldwide, but not many know the actor's struggle behind reaching these heights. The young boy, who had never given up on his dreams, comes from a humble background. He hails from a small district of Karnataka. 

His faith had drastically changed since the actor had stepped into the film city, leaving his studies against the will of his parents. However, over the years, Yash has etched a special place in the hearts of his millions of fans with his stellar performance and humble nature. Now, in a recent interview, the ace director, SS Rajamouli, who is famous for directing movies like Bahubali and RRR has revealed an unknown story about Yash's father, which would undoubtedly leave you teary-eyed.

In a recent event, SS Rajamouli spilled the beans and revealed some details about the Kannada actor, Yash's personal life. Talking about his father, Arun Kumar, the ace filmmaker said that he felt shocked to know that the superstar's father, a bus driver by profession, still does the same work. SS Rajamouli can be quoted as saying:

"I was amazed after knowing that Yash is the son of a bus driver. I'm told that his father works as a bus driver even today. To me, Yash's father is the real star more than the actor." 


Yash's family was supportive of his ambition, but the doting parents also wanted their son to complete his degree first. On the other hand, Yash's passion for acting had made him quit his studies after completing his II PUC. In an interview with Variety after the success of K.G.F 2, Yash had recalled that when he had left his house to pursue acting, his parents had thought that Yash would get disappointed and would come back after a week or two. In his words:

"They thought okay, maximum one or two days he will be there, or a week, and he will come back. He will realize what life is."
