As per media reports, Chiranjeevi, 65, resumed the filming three days ago. According to sources close to the film, 90 per cent of the shoot was completed before the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic hit India. The film, also starring Kajal Aggarwal, Sonu Sood and Pooja Hegde, was slated to arrive in cinema halls on May 13 but due to the COVID-19 outbreak and theatre shutdown across the country, the makers have postponed the release.
The movie reportedly revolves around a middle-aged Naxalite-turned-social reformer who launches a fight against the Endowments Department over misappropriation and embezzlement of temple funds and donations. Presented by Surekha Konidela, the film is produced by Charan and Niranjan Reddy under their Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainment.
