The heat wave in Rajahmundry touching 45 to 47 degrees, the upcoming Sukumar-Ramcharan film shooting has been postponed and the entire crew moved to Hyderabad where some scenes are being shot. Though the crew was supposed to return to Rajahmundry this week, the shooting was re-scheduled, said the producers of the film.
The first schedule of the shooting of Ramcharan–Sukumar movie being produced by Mythri Movie Makers started from 1st April in and around Rajahmundry in exotic natural locations, finished the location scenes and moved to Hyderabad.
The makers of the film were happy with the progress during this schedule since almost throughout the schedule the shooting started by 6 am. Hero Ramcharan and the entire team were often ready at the locations every day as early as 5 am, they said. This film is an entirely commercial entertainer with the hero playing a challenging character.
A short 2nd schedule began in Hyderabad from 9th May onwards and after finishing the shooting in Hyderabad, the crew was supposed to return to a major schedule in Rajamundhry surroundings later this month, but it was postponed owing to extreme heat conditions with temperature touching 45 to 47 degrees in Rajahmundry, which has affected the artistes and the technicians, said producers of the film.
The producers did not want to take any chance keeping in mind that Samantha already suffered a sunstroke in the earlier schedule and hence, planned to proceed with the shooting in full swing from June 1st onwards in Rajahmundry surroundings.
An introduction song is being planned in huge sets on a massive scale on the banks of river Godavari. Subsequent schedules will be shot in Hyderabad in specially erected sets, said the producers who want to ensure that enough time is given to the team so that a perfect quality output which is highly anticipated from the Ramcharan – Sukumar combination.
Once the shooting in Rajahmundry is completed, the producers plan to announce the release date in the month of August. Other cast in the film include Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, and Aadi among others.
