It's an anxious wait for fans of Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan, as several of his highly-awaited films have been stuck in production hell for longer than expected. Recently, speculations were rife about his period drama Hari Hara Veera Mallu being shelved.
However, the producers have issued an official statement regarding the progress of the project, putting an end to all speculations. In the statement, Mega Surya Production indirectly relied on the famous proverb - all good things take time - to justify the delay.
The producers noted that the film is heavy on special effects and the VFX work is being carried out by a team of experts in different parts of the world, citing the reason behind the delay. "Currently, our prestigious movie's high-end VFX work is going on in places like Iran, Canada, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. Our film will push the boundaries of your imagination with an unprecedented scale and breadth. So, please stay tuned and anticipate the thrill!" read the statement from the producers.
The filmmakers also promised that they would be unveiling a teaser very soon giving a glimpse of the grand cinematic world of Hari Hara Veera Mallu.
In Hari Hara Veera Mallu, Pawan essays the role of the legendary outlaw Veera Mallu. The story is set in the 17th century against the backdrop of the Mughal Empire and is written and directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi, popularly known as Krish.
A couple of years ago, the filmmakers shared a promo video revealing Pawan's look and the visual style of this epic movie. Pawan also underwent special martial arts training to play the role.
Hari Hara Veera Mallu also stars Nidhhi Agerwal, Arjun Rampal and Nargis Fakhri.
Besides Hari Hara Veera Mallu, Pawan's Ustaad Bhagat Singh and OG also faced delays in completion. It's said that Pawan's political ambitions are keeping him from fulfilling his film commitments. Earlier the producers of OG confirmed that the movie will hit the screens on September 27 this year. And director Harish Shankar is also confident that he will be able to resume shooting Ustaad Bhagat Singh soon.
