After enduring a long delay due to the recent lockdown, Director Hemanth M. Rao & Co. has resumed the production of ‘Sapta Sagaradache Ello’. The team had begun the proceeding earlier this year but was later forced to put things to a halt due to the sudden surge in cases and the resulting lockdown. The romantic drama, starring Rakshit Shetty and Rukmini Vasanth, is now back on its feet and has also kickstarted the second schedule.
According to a recent report in an online daily, the entire unit will get busy for a period of 35 days and shoot in Bengaluru at a stretch to wrap up a large chunk of the film. Hemanth M. Rao, while speaking to the same daily, revealed that the team will take a short break post the intense schedule and possibly head to Shivamogga to continue further.
This will be Hemanth Rao and Rakshit Shetty’s second collaboration after the very successful outing in 2016 with ‘Godhi Banna, Sadharan Mykattu’. Rukmini Vasanth, on the other hand, came on board through an audition and caught the best break of her career so far, having made her debut with M.G. Srinivas’ ‘Birbal Trilogy’ in 2019. The two actors underwent a carefully designed acting workshop prior to filming so as to prepare for their respective parts and also understand the emotional core of their on-screen relationship.
In the same spirit, Rakshit Shetty is all set to return to direction after a long hiatus with the ‘Ulidavaru Kandanthe’ spinoff, ‘Richard Anthony’. He will also be soon seen essaying the role of “Dharma” in the film ‘777 Charlie’.
