Back in December, Sun Pictures, the production house, announced that the shooting of Annaatthe movie will resume on December 14 after a break of about 10 months due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Rajinikanth, Nayanthara, and several other actors shot for a couple of days in Hyderabad until four members of the film crew tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Following that, Rajinikanth was hospitalized due to fluctuations in blood pressure. After receiving treatment, Rajinikanth reached Chennai and has been advised complete rest. Now, the latest update is that the shooting of Annaatthe might resume in April, after the Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections.
