The producers will hold many meetings to discuss actor remuneration, budget and technical aspects in the post-Covid era.
During a media interaction, Vijay Deverakonda said, "This is a temporary hold. The shoots will resume in one week. it's just that the producers have decided to stop the shootings for a while to get everyone on one page in terms of remuneration, cost of production and other technical aspects. Owing to this, they decided to put shoots on hold for some time. We have a system of unions there, every now and then they call for a strike for a few days. Since somebody wants a raise or something else. We all wait till the strike, when they sort their things out again, we get back to work."
