Friday, March 13, 2020 - 17:30

As the crisis of Coronavirus is continuing to escalate, Hollywood and Bollywood films are canceling the shoots and delaying the releases. Tollywood is also slowly realizing its impact. Allu Arjun’s new film to be directed by Sukumar was originally scheduled to begin the regular shoot in the forests of Kerala from next week. 

With Kerala being the most affected state in India, the state government has canceled all permissions. Sukumar has also dropped the idea of beginning the shoot in Kerala. Now, Sukumar is planning to shoot the same portions in Andhra Pradesh or in a studio in Hyderabad.

The film is set in the backdrop of red sanders smuggling. Allu Arjun is said to be playing a lorry driver. This is Sukumar’s next film after the massive blockbuster ‘Rangasthalam’. Rashmika Mandanna is the heroine. Mythri Movie Makers are producing it.
