Gopichand and Taapsee along with director Chandrasekhar Yeleti and few technicians had recently shot a risky action sequence in Afghanistan on the backdrop of the unfamiliar buzkashi sport for their upcoming film. Buzkashi meaning ‘goat killing’, is the Afghan national sport about hunting mountain goats by horseriders and the one who pitches a dead goat across the goal line first wins.
Now the movie had a similar action sequence in which Gopichand is the horse-rider and Taapsee is the bait instead of a dead goat. The makers feel that this action sequence is sure to give the Telugu audiene a different experience. Earlier the 1970 adventure film ‘The Horsemen’ set in mountainous Afghanistan, had some scenes relating to this brutal sport.
BVSN Prasad is producing this untitled film on Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra banner. The unit completed two shooting schedules and resumed its next in Ladhak.
