Actor Varun Tej, who started 2018 with a hit, Tholiprema, has geared for the shooting of his sci-fi thriller. As we all know, Varun Tej has teamed up with National award-winning director Sankalp Reddy, who shot to fame with Rana Daggubati starrer Ghazi. The film is yet to be titled and will be produced by Rajeev Reddy. While the shooting of the film has begun in full swing, here’s an interesting update that will leave everyone excited. Reportedly, the makers of the film are leaving no stone unturned in the shooting of the film to ensure that the film is of international standards. Since the film is a space thriller, there is a zero-gravity set erected at the Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad.
“The makers have gone all out to ensure that the film is of international standards. Several technicians from Hollywood have been roped in, and they will assisting to create stunning visual effects and even action sequences. A 3D scan of the lead actors was also taken,” Times Of India quoted a source from the film’s production unit.
As earlier we revealed, the makers of the film have roped in stunt choreographers from Hollywood. The Hollywood stunt designers will monitor the action episodes and ensure that they are being executed as per their plans.
Earlier during the launch of the film, producer Rajeev Reddy had said, “It’s going to be a space film. Varun plays an astronaut. Varun and Sankalp will soon head to Kazakhstan for month-long training in zero gravity conditions. If everything goes as planned, we’re eyeing 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 are being built. We also plan to rope in stuntmen from Hollywood.”
The film also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and is slated to release next year!
