The first shooting schedule of Sarkaru Vaari Paata was originally scheduled to take place in the United States. However, the makers had to shift the shooting location to Dubai due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Now, the team is looking at filming a major chunk of the movie in Dubai only.
In addition to Mahesh Babu and Keerthy Suresh, the upcoming film will also see a prominent name playing the lead antagonist. If reports are to be believed, evergreen Bollywood star Anil Kapoor, who boasts of several blockbusters on his filmography, has been approached to play the villain. However, there is no update on whether or not the actor has accepted the offer.
Reportedly, the makers had initially approached Kannada actor Kichcha Sudeep for the same role. However, he could not accept the offer due to his chock-o-block schedule and prior work commitments.
Mahesh Babu was last seen on the big screen in action-comedy Sarileru Neekevvaru (2020), co-starring Rashmika Mandana. The film emerged as an instant blockbuster at the ticket window, earning over 2000 million at the box-office.
Parasuram is helming his next Sarkaru Vaari Paata. The actor also headlines the upcoming biographical film Major, based on the life of the 2008 Mumbai attacks martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan.
