Arjun Rampal to start shooting for PSPK 27
The Rock On actor, who plays Aurangazeb in this period action-adventure, will now join the sets for a 12-day schedule in Hyderabad
Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal is gearing up to make his debut in Telugu cinema. The Rock On actor will be seen stepping into the shoes of Aurangazeb, the sixth Mughal emperor, in Pawan Kalyan's period action-adventure, PSPK 27.
He will start shooting for the film on February 19 in Hyderabad. "A 12-day schedule involving Pawan Kalyan and Arjun Rampal among others will be filmed in specially-erected Charminar and Machilipatnam port sets in the city. He worked on his body language to ace Aurangazeb's part and is excited to begin his new journey in Tollywood," says a source from the crew.
Interestingly, the film also has Jacqueline Fernandez playing Arjun Rampal's sister. "She is also expected to join the sets in this schedule as the makers are planning to shoot the romantic track featuring her and Pawan Kalyan," the source adds.
Directed by Krish, the film went on floors last year and the shooting was halted following the COVID-19 outbreak. The makers, however, resumed the shoot recently in Hyderabad and shot crucial scenes with Niddhi Agerwal, who plays the leading lady opposite Pawan Kalyan.
Rumour has it that the makers are considering one among Virupaksha, Hara Hara Mahadeva and Hari Hara Veeramallu as the film's title. Produced by AM Rathnam, PSPK 27 will be released during Sankranthi 2022.
