Pawan Kalyan starts shooting for his next with Trivikram; makers eyeing Dussehra release
Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan usually takes a long gap between two films owing to his other commitments, political or otherwise. However, just 10 days after the release of his last film, Kishore Kumar Pardasani's Katamarayudu, he has already started shooting for his next directed by Trivikram.
This film will mark his third collaboration with the filmmaker after the 2008 action comedy Jalsa and the 2013 comedy Attarintiki Daredi. Deccan Chronicle reports that Kalyan has started shooting for the film in Hyderabad. He is joined by one of the leading ladies, Annu Emannuel has also joined her whereas the other leading lady, Tamil actor Keerthy Suresh will join the cast and crew later.
Telugu Cinema reports that they will shoot for the film for five days this week before taking a short break. They will resume the shooting next week for a much lengthy shooting schedule in Ramoji Film City. The makers are planning to wrap up the shooting at the earliest in order to ensure its release on Dussehra, a perfect time for the release of big Telugu films.
However, Mirchi 9 reports that they are also apprehensive of releasing Kalyan's next during that time as various veterans like Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Nagarjuna and Balakrishna are already rumoured to release their respective films at the same time. The makers were planning to release Kalyan's next on 11 August but that does not seem to materialise.
Thus, now in case Dushherra does not work out, the makers are eyeing Makar Sakranti 2018 in order to ensure that there is no competition from another big film during holiday season. Kalyan's Katamarayudu opened to a great response last month as it raked in over Rs 50 crore on its first day, as reported by India Today. It is expected to cross the coveted Rs 100 crore mark soon.
Kalyan's next with Trivikram is produced by Haarika and Haasine Creations. It will also mark the Telugu debut of the young and established Tamil music composer Anirudh Ravichander.
