Now all states are struggling with the sudden spike in the cases and there is a talk on social media is that the central government may extend the lockdown period till April end.
If the lockdown really gets extended, several biggies in Tollywood will hit hard especially films like Pawan Kalyan’s “Vakeel Saab” and Chiranjeevi’s “Acharya”.
Koratala Siva has been worrying about constant delays in the shooting. It was his idea to release on August 14 coinciding with Independence Day. Because he doesn’t want to extend the shooting further. He has already lost more than a year’s time waiting for Chiranjeevi.
The coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown came as a shocker to him and all his plans have turned upside down.
It would be the biggest challenge for him to meet the deadline of August 14. So far, the heroine has not yet joined the shoot.
Kajal Aggarwal has been signed to play but scenes involving with her to be filmed. A huge portion involving Ram Charan also needs to be canned.
He has only three months on his hands to wrap the entire shoot to meet the deadline. Or it might be pushed to October 2nd.
