One must trust ace director Krish to make the best use of lockdown time. The Manikarnika filmmaker who's currently helming the Pawan Kalyan-starrer Hari Hara Veera Mallu is also tied up supervising an OTT production in Telugu under his home banner. While the shoot of Hari Hara Veera Mallu has been put on hold for now, the director-producer has moved onto this OTT show that's an adaptation of a Telugu novel written by popular novelist Malladi Venkata Krishnamurthy.

A source known to OTTplay confirms, "Despite the lockdown, there has been no ban on film or television shoots. Krish's production house is relentlessly working for the OTT show during the lockdown relaxation time between 6 am and 2 pm. Most of the actors have been stationed at a location near the sets for convenience. The shoot of the show is being organised with strict health protocols in place and is expected to wrap up in quick time."

Interestingly, even during the previous year's lockdown, Krish took a break from the shoot of Hari Hara Veera Mallu, to wrap up an adaptation of an award-winning Telugu novel, Kondapolam. The film, featuring Vaishnav Tej, Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Chand in pivotal roles, was shot entirely in a forest backdrop in a single, non-stop 40-day schedule. Though the film was initially slated to release on an OTT platform, the growing popularity for Vaishnav Tej after the success of his debut film Uppena has made the makers reconsider their decision.
