Darshan’s Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka is one of the most anticipated films. The first half of the film’s shooting happened in Kerala before the coronavirus outbreak. Producer Rockline Venkatesh has said that the film’s shooting will resume in August.
“There is a change of schedule from the initial plan. Instead of the earlier plan to shoot in parts of Rajasthan and then in Bengaluru and Chitradurga, among other places, we have now decided to shoot first in Karnataka and later head to other states,” says Rockline Venkatesh.
The Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka team is currently working on the table work. Rockline Venkatesh has chalked out a new set of guidelines for the sets. About the guidelines, Rockline said, “First and foremost, I will be setting up a disinfection tunnel, and everyone will have to enter and exit through this. We are also be going with the norms of wearing masks, using sanitisers, and maintaining social distancing.” “Along with this, we will also follow the guidelines given by the health department,” he added.
Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka is a massive film with a huge budget and a long list of crew members. While talking about reducing the number of crew members, Rockline says he can not possibly do that about all the posts. “We need to have a certain number of crew members, who are required to do certain jobs, and I can’t prevent it. However, unlike before, we will make sure the place is not crowded. We will reduce the number of people entering the sets. The team will have a detailed discussion on the number of junior artistes or fighters required, and only those will be given entry on the days they have their respective scenes,” Rockline elaborated.
Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka is a rendition of the novel written by BL Venu. SV Rajendra Singh Babu is directing the film. Veteran musician Hamsalekha is composing the film’s score. Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka’s shooting will resume as soon as the government's permits arrive.
