The Darshan starrer epic film Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka is one of the most awaited films of this year. Additionally, it is also a big-budget film that has a lot riding on it. The Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka team plans to kick start shooting soon. While the permission to resume shooting has given producers some hope to regain investments, Darshan has another perspective to offer.
Darshan says, “The permission for shooting is given in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana even before the cinema halls are opened. Given the scenario, we are hearing that the government will allow only 500 people to watch a film in a theatre which has the seating capacity of 1,000 people per show. If the same pattern continues it will affect the Box Office collections which forces the producers to think about the amount of money he should spend on a film. The cinema halls should reopen first, alongside production activities.”
Darshan also took this opportunity to talk about his ventures. “I have Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka in the pipeline then I will be working with Prakash and Shylaja Nag for a movie. Yes, Rajendra Singh Babu had narrated an interesting storyline; I had given nod for the project, apart from that nothing was finalized. I can speak about another project with Rajendra Singh Babu only after completing all three projects,” said Darshan.
On the work front, apart from Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka, Darshan is looking forward to the release of Roberrt helmed by Tharun Sudhir.
