Dhruva Sarja to be trained in Mallakhamba for Poguru
The actor’s schoolboy look is being closely guarded by the makers, who will start shooting this week
Dhurva Sarja’s Poguru is taking time to go on floors, but the actor, who believes in perfection, is using this time to prepare himself for the role. Director Nanda Kishore and producer Gangadhar have no qualms about this wait, as they want to get the best shots for their film.
It is already known that Dhruva underwent a transformation to perfect his schoolboy look, for which he rigourously exercised and dieted. The actor’s look is now closely guarded by the makers before they go on the floors on March 7. Initially, they had planned to begin shooting from tomorrow at Ramoji City, and it is now pushed back by two more days because Dhruva will be training in Mallakhamba (pole gymnastics), a sport from the 12th century. A team from Desi Sports from Maharashta, specialists in this sport, will be coming to Bengaluru to train Dhruva.
Meanwhile, the school episode that was initially planned for a few minutes, will now be extended for around 15-20 minutes. The initial shoot will start on Wednesday, with sequences involving Dhruva and actor Ravi Shankar.
