Nabha Natesh was forced to shoot amid coronavirus outbreak
The makers of Alludu Adhurs have not yet suspended the shoot despite instructions from the government and film bodies
A day after the Telugu film industry's collective decision to cancel the film shooting schedules to restrict the spread of COVID-19, the makers of Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas-starrer Alludu Adhurs have turned a deaf ear to the concerns of their leading lady Nabha Natesh and are going ahead with the shoot. The team has reportedly shot some crucial scenes with Sreenivas and Nabha, among others, in a house near Shambashabad on Monday.
According to a source, Sreenivas's father and producer Bellamkonda Suresh has insisted that the unit continue the shoot. As a result of it, a hesitant Nabha, who was in Bengaluru, was asked to fly down to Hyderabad despite expressing her concerns over the safety on the sets.
"Nabha was concerned that she was violating the government and industry instructions. However, she remained patient and did her part like a true professional," informs a source close to the development.
Meanwhile, Bellamkonda defends
When Cinema Express contacted Bellamkonda Suresh about the development, the producer says, "We are shooting combination scenes and aim to complete it without any delay due to lack of availability of call sheets of those prominent artistes. We brought face masks all the way from Bengaluru and are currently shooting in a house in Shamshabad."
Directed by Santosh Srinivas Rowthu, Alludu Adhurs is being produced by Subrahmanyam Gorrela.
