Pawan Kalyan recently wrapped up the shooting of his upcoming entertainer Katamarayudu which is directed by Dolly of Gopala Gopala fame.
The pre-release function of the film will be held on March 18, 2017. Already the film’s teaser, trailer and first look created a powerful impact on social media. In the meantime, art director Brahma Kadali shared the secret behind Katamarayudu village.
Since the film has a Rayalaseema backdrop, filmmakers erected sets depicting the same. Brahma Kadali earlier worked for Pawan Kalyan’s films like Sardaar Gabbar Singh, Gabbar Singh, and Gopala Gopala.
Brahma Kadali said, “Since Pawan Kalyan has very tight schedules, it wasn’t even an option for us to go to a real village to film. So we created a village, which included four important elements: Pawan Kalyan garu’s house, Shruti Haasan’s house, a train compartment and a temple,“ He went on to add “This one suspense sequence that required a majestic old Shivalayam amidst lots of rocks and ruins. And there weren’t any that suited our needs in Hyderabad. So we had to build it… in five days.Something like this would easily take at least 20 days! We quickly put together a massive team of about 400 artists, who worked day and night. And we managed to complete it in time,“
The film which is the remake of Tamil hit Veeram will be releasing on March 24. Anup Rubens is the music director for the film, and it also stars Siva Balaji, Kamal Kamaraju, Ajay, Ali, Rao Ramesh, Venu Madhav, Nassar, Chaitanya Krishna and Tarun Arora in pivotal roles.
