And according to latest developments, the yet to be titled film will have stunt choreographers from Hollywood who have already been roped in for and will soon land in the city for the shooting of the film. The shooting of the film will be happening in Hyderabad and Bulgaria majorly.

The film is yet to be to titled and will be produced by Rajeev Reddy and director Krish jointly.
Varun Tej will be seen playing an astronaut in the film, for the first time, and will be first-of-its-kind film in Telugu after the likes of Aditya 369 which featured Nandamuri Balakrishna in the lead role. “It’s going to be a space film. Varun plays an astronaut. Last couple of weeks he’s been busy with the promotions of Tholi Prema. Now that the film has released, we hope to speed up the process. We plan to send Varun and Sankalp to Kazakhstan for month-long training in zero gravity conditions in early March. The regular shooting will commence from April and we’re planning a year-end release. Most of the shooting will happen outside India. Initially, we planned to shoot in the US, but now we’ve decided to shoot in Georgia where special sets and rigs will be built. We also plan to rope in stuntmen from Hollywood,” a source had told recently.
