Published: 02nd September 2020

Kiranraj K, who is directing the Rakshit Shetty-starrer 777 Charlie, is at present spending a lot of time with the labrador dogs who are a part of the cast, as he plans to resume the shoot for this comedy-drama-adventure in the first week of October. “I have the storyboard ready, and we have been busy with rehearsals, before we go on the sets,” says Kiranraj.

Abiding by the guidelines set by the government, the team will begin shooting indoors in Bengaluru, at a set they are preparing at a studio near Nelamangala.

“We are left with 30 days of shooting - six days in the city, following which some parts will be shot in Kodaikanal. The subsequent schedule will happen in Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, and Kashmir,” says Kiranraj, who is glad to have landed the shoot backdrop that he was looking for.

“I was upset about the pandemic becoming a hurdle, but fortunately, I am going back to the shoot at the right time, and in perfect weather. We will be travelling up north in November when the snowfall begins, and that’s the perfect setting for our story,” says the director, who wants to complete the shoot by December this year.

Kiranraj adds that he is ready with the first half of the film, for which he has completed dubbing, rerecording and sound effects.

Rakshit Shetty plays a character called Dharma in 777 Charlie. The movie, also featuring Sangeetha Sringeri and Raj B Shetty, is presented by Pushkar Films, and jointly produced by Rakshit Shetty and GS Gupta under the banner of Paramvah Studios. It has music composed by Nobin Paul, cinematography by Aravind Kashyap, and editing by Pratheek Shetty.

Meanwhile, Rakshit Shetty is also working on a script, commisioned by Paramvah Studios, for a streaming platform. The actor had earlier told Cinema Express that his first preference is to complete the shooting for 777 Charlie, after which he will take up the project for the OTT platform.
