The shoot of superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ was stopped in Hyderabad recently due to coronavirus scare. Now the team led by director Siva has worked out a new strategy.
As against the earlier plan of shooting the movie in places like West Bengal and other places, sets will be erected at studios in Chennai itself. “This is to avoid travelling,” sources say.
Siva has retained his ‘Viswasam’ technical crew including music composer Imman, cinematographer Vetri, editor Ruben, and art director Milan, while the members of the cast include Meena, Khushbu, Nayanthara, Keerthy Suresh, Prakash Raj, Soori, and Sathish.
Sources said recently that Telugu actor Gopichand was roped in to play one of the villains of the movie directed by Siva and produced by Sun Pictures. He is expected to start shooting for his portions soon. It is learnt that two schedules shoot of ‘Annatthhe’ has already been completed.
