Director Praveen Sattaru says his
upcoming Telugu action thriller "PSV Garuda Vega" has been shot for
over a month in never before explored places in Georgia, braving
extreme climatic conditions.
"I made it a point to shoot in locations that haven't been explored in any other Indian film in the past. In a marathon schedule that lasted 40 days, the cast and crew shot in the Eurasian country in rather extreme climatic conditions only because the script demanded it," Sattaru told IANS.
The film stars Rajasekhar, Pooja Kumar, Kishore and Shraddha Das.
Talking about the experience of shooting in Georgia, Sattaru said: "The authorities were very supportive in issuing permissions to shoot in sensitive terrains.
"The stunts team, being highly skilled, only helped matters. For about 33 days, the team had to camp in locations which are unconnected by hotels within a radius of 100 km."
Rajasekhar will be seen in a reinvented police avatar in the film.
"Rajasekhar will be playing his age in this film and his role will be along the lines of his character from 'Magaadu', but even more serious. He sports a new look, but it has been designed keeping in mind the realistic tone of the project," he said.
