Kerala floods delay Shailaja Reddy Alludu release
The post-production of the Naga Chaitanya-starrer hit a roadblock when composer Gopi Sundar was forced to halt work due to the floods
Naga Chaitanya’s upcoming family entertainer Shailaja Reddy Alludu has been postponed owing to the delay in post-production works due to the floods in Kerala. The film which was slated for release on August 31 is now likely to be released in the second week of September.
“The incessant rains and subsequent floods in many parts of Kerala have drastically affected the state. With no power supply in the flood-ravaged region, music composer Gopi Sundar had no choice but to halt work. Director Maruthi, who left for Kochi to work along with Gopi returned to the city (Hyderabad) in disappointment on Monday. The makers are now planning to rope in another music composer to complete the balance re-recording,” reveals a source.
That’s not all; the post-production also hit a roadblock as Ramya Krishna is yet to dub her lines for the film. “Ramya Krishna couldn’t dub for six reels of the film due to a sore throat. It will take at least 10 days for the makers to wrap up these formalities and so they've decided to push the release by a few weeks,” the source adds.
Also starring Anu Emmanuel, the film is being produced by Naga Vamsi S and presented by PDV Prasad.
