Varun Tej's Boxer to resume shooting in September
The sports drama will be one of the much-awaited big-budget films to resume production during the unlock 1.0 phase
After a four-month break due to the Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown, the makers of Varun Tej's upcoming film, VT 10 are raring to go. The team is planning to resume shooting in September with strict adherence to health and safety guidelines issued by the State and Central governments.
"We have planned two schedules in Hyderabad and Delhi. While the Hyderabad schedule will commence on September 15 with attention to all the safety norms, the Delhi one will begin after the Covid-19 curve flattens. Maintaining sanitization and making masks mandatory on the sets, we will be shooting with a 30-member crew until the completion of the film," confirms Kiran Korrapati.
Saiee Manjrekar, who made an impressive debut in Hindi opposite Salman Khan in Dabanng 3, will be foraying into Telugu as the female lead of the film. "Besides Varun and Saiee, actors Upendra, Suniel Shetty and Nadiya, who are playing pivotal roles in the film, will join the action as well," adds Kiran.
Tentatively titled Boxer, the film went on floors in February in Visakhapatnam, but the shoot came to a grinding halt due to Covid-19 lockdown in March. The film is being bankrolled by Allu Venkatesh (Bobby) and Sandeep Mudda.
