Puneeth Rajkumar had recently completed the shoot of the major action blocks in his upcoming actioner, James. The crew, after their schedule in Kashmir, had resumed the shoot earlier this month. Director Chethan Kumar has now shared some pictures from the sets, which show stunt choreographer Ravi Varma putting together a gritty chasing sequence on Nice Road, Bengaluru, with all safety measures in place.

For this particular action block, the team had hired ten professional motorsports drivers from Mumbai.

The team, which had completed 60 per cent of the movie’s shoot, has now pushed the pre-planned schedule, citing the COVID resurgence.

James, bankrolled by Kishore Pathikonda, has Puneeth and Chethan Kumar teaming up for the first time. The film has Priya Anand sharing screen space with Puneeth Rajkumar for the second time, after RaajakumaraJames also features Telugu actor Meka Srikanth in a pivotal role, with Rangayana Raghu and Mukesh Rishi appearing in supporting roles.

Next in line for the Yuvarathnaa hero will be his project with Lucia director Pawan Kumar. This film will be produced by Hombale Films. Puneeth is also joining hands for the first time with Dinakar Thoogudeeepa for a commercial entertainer, to be produced by Jayanna Films.
