With the COVID-19 a pandemic, cinema, OTT, and television production the world over have been adversely hit, and the thriving Telugu Film Industry is no exception. The film shoots are halted and the cinema halls are also closed everywhere.
On the other hand, the lockdown period has allowed a few directors to rework on their scripts as they have ample amount of time. The rework has made many directors to plan reshoots on some key portions. Well, now the latest reports suggest that the ace director Sukumar did the same thing i.e. rework on the script of his next film Pushpa.
We’ve earlier reported that Sukumar has already completed a few scenes in Kerala. Given the coronavirus lockdown, the makers couldn’t resume the shoot. It is heard that Sukumar planned to shoot in Kerala but the coronavirus pandemic changed the entire plans of the Pushpa team.
Now the makers are in discussions to finish the planned Kerala episodes in East Godavari forests. So, the already finalized locations in Kerala will be re-created in Andhra Pradesh. Now it is learned that it would cost an additional Rs 3 Cr burden for the Pushpa producers.
On the other hand, Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi will be seen in a crucial role in the film. Rashmika Mandanna is the female lead. The film is being bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers.
