Chiru will be my guiding force and I will follow in his footsteps: Dhruva Sarja
As Dhruva gears up to resume shooting for Pogaru, the actor talks about getting ready for his next projects and dubbing for his brother, Chiranjeevi Sarja’s film, Rajamarthanda
Dhruva Sarja will soon be back in action. The actor is said to be hitting the gym regularly as he gears up to resume shooting for his upcoming film, Pogaru. Dhruva, who is still coming to terms with the sudden demise of his brother, Chiranjeevi Sarja, is keeping his focus on cinema for now.
Dhruva and his wife also tested positive for Covid-19, and have recovered from it. He now gets ready to restart filming the pending songs for Pogaru, directed by Nanda Kishore and produced by BK Gangadhar. The team is finalising locations in Bengaluru where they will be constructing the sets, and plan to start the shoot on August 16. Meanwhile, the Telugu version of the Karabuu song, which has almost hit 100 million views this week, will be out on August 6.
“I am preparing to resume filming the Pogaru songs, and preparations are going on from the team’s end to begin the shoot from mid-August,” says Dhruva, who is also getting ready for his next project. He will be teaming up with Nanda Kishore again for a project produced by Uday K Mehta. The actor is said to be in the process of losing weight for the film. “Nanda has sketched a stylish character for me, for which I am working on getting a leaner look. We will start the film once the government grants permission to start shooting for new projects,” he explains.
Talking about reports of him lending support to the pending projects starring Chiranjeevi Sarja, he says, “I will reveal more as and when we start working on the films. At present, I have agreed to dub Chiru’s portions in Rajamarthanda. I might get emotional watching his visuals at the recording studio, and that is one of the reasons for my decision to take a little more time to start dubbing.”
Dhruva, who has confirmed his project with Uday Mehta as his next, will also be zeroing in on another film. Ask him about his future projects, and the actor mentions that from now on there will be no set plans from his end and that he wants to go with the flow. “Chiru will be my guiding force and I will follow in his footsteps. My brother will decide, and I will go by what is expected of me,” Dhruva signs off.
