During a recent interaction with a news agency, director Praveen Sattaru said that the team of his upcoming film ‘PSV Garuda Vega’ braved unfavourable climatic conditions and shot in relatively unknown parts of Georgia for nearly a month.
“I made it a point to shoot in locations that haven’t been explored in any other Indian film in the past. In a marathon schedule that lasted 40 days, the cast and crew shot in the Eurasian country in rather extreme climatic conditions only because the script demanded it,” he added.
Moreover, he stressed that they didn’t face any difficulties while shooting in Georgia thanks a highly skilled stunt team and some cooperative authorities.
“The authorities were very supportive in issuing permissions to shoot in sensitive terrains.The stunts team, being highly skilled, only helped matters. For about 33 days, the team had to camp in locations which are unconnected by hotels within a radius of 100 km,” Praveen said.
In case you did not know, ‘PSV Garuda Vega’ is one of the most eagerly-awaited films of the year. It features Rajasekhar, Pooja Kumar and Kishore in the lead. The film’s first look was unveiled earlier this year amidst much fanfare.
Interestingly, Praveen claims that ‘PSV Garuda’ is a film that can well and truly help Rajasekhar re-invent himself.
“Rajasekhar will be playing his age in this film and his role will be along the lines of his character from ‘Magaadu’, but even more serious. He sports a new look, but it has been designed keeping in mind the realistic tone of the project,” he said.
It must be pointed out here that, last year, Rajasekhar suffered a setback when his horror film ‘Patta Patta Pagalu’ got shelved and left his fans heartbroken. Let’s hope the ‘PSV Garuda’ helps him taste success again.
