Director Harish Shankar’s project, “Ustaad Bhagat Singh,” has faced numerous delays due to Pawan Kalyan’s involvement in political activities. Despite initially starting the project in May, shooting schedules have been repeatedly postponed, impacting the film’s progress.
Recently, the shooting resumed just three days ago, but Pawan Kalyan’s political engagements once again disrupted the filming when he was detained by the Andhra Pradesh Police. It remains uncertain whether Pawan Kalyan will promptly return to the film set or if further delays are in store.
Harish Shankar requires a minimum of 70 days of Pawan Kalyan’s availability to complete the film. Pawan Kalyan’s arrest by the Andhra Pradesh Police took place in the NTR district as he protested against the police’s interference with his convoy at the Telangana-Andhra border. His initial attempt to travel by air was thwarted by the Krishna district police, who prevented his special flight from departing Hyderabad.
Consequently, Pawan Kalyan opted to travel by road but encountered obstacles in the NTR district, leading him to exit his vehicle and walk towards Mangalagiri in Vijayawada, even lying down and walking on the road at Anumanchipalli after being blocked from reaching Vijayawada. The uncertainty surrounding Pawan Kalyan’s availability continues to pose challenges for the completion of “Ustaad Bhagat Singh.”
