Dashing director Puri Jagannadh came back to success form with his last film iSmart Shankar. Starring Ram Pothineni in the lead role, this movie became a huge blockbuster at the box office. Currently, he is making his next film with Vijay Deverakonda. The latest we hear is that the new schedule of this film will begin at the Ramoji Film City of Hyderabad.
Initially, the makers planned to shoot the entire film in Mumbai. However, the coronavirus pandemic has ruined all their plans. The shoot got halted since March. The city of Mumbai is currently one of the most affected regions of the coronavirus. The government is yet to give permission for the shoots in the city. Shooting in Mumbai will be a risk for the entire cast and crew. Thus, the makers of this film decided to erect sets in Ramoji Film City. Apparently, the artwork is under process and the shoot of the film will resume soon.
The makers are considering the titles Fighter and Liger for this movie. Ananya Panday is playing the female lead in this movie. The film marks her debut into the South Indian film industry. This untitled project will be a pan-India film that will have a release in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam. It is being produced jointly by Puri Jagannadh, Karan Johar, and Charmy Kaur. Stay tuned for more updates on it.
