Gunasekhar’s latest mythological film ‘Hiranya Kashyapa’ with Rana Daggubati was announced last year. Gunashekar informed us that he has been working on this film for three years and the film will have loads of visual effects. Sources tell us that the Pre-Production works of the movie are in the last stage.
The movie will go on floors after Rana completes his Virataparvam. Sources say that the movie will start rolling from October. This will mean a lot of weight for Daggubati fans who are waiting for this project for quite some time now. The director is telling us that the movie budget would be in the range of 200 Crore. But rumors are that Suresh Babu slashed it down to 100 Crore citing that 200 Crore will be too much for the prevailing market conditions. Sources say that a massive set worth 40 Crore is being erected in Ramanaidu Cine Village for the film.
This is said to be the costliest set ever beating ‘Baahubali,’ and most of the film shooting will happen in this set. But then, there are no more sets in the film and so the budget for sets is not higher when compared to Baahubali. This is the first time Rana Daggubati will be seen in a Mythological Role. He previously donned such getups for some sequences in Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.
