Rajnikanth was shooting for his new film Annaatthe before the coronavirus became a worldwide calamity. The actor was shooting with Nayanthara and Keerthy Suresh for this drama but then the national lockdown was announced and the shoot had to be stalled.
However, from December 14th, Rajnikanth’s film resumed shooting. The cast and the crew were excited as they finally returned to the set. It was even said that owing Rajnikanth’s age, the shoot would be done mostly indoors for the megastar’s safety. But now we hear that the shoot has been stalled again. The makers tweeted saying that four of their crew members have tested positive for COVID-19 and hence they will have to halt the shoot. Sun Pictures tweeted saying, ‘To ensure utmost safety #Annaatthe shooting has been postponed.’
The actors have been tested too and the results have been negative. The film is said to be high on drama with Nayanthara playing his wife and Keerthy Suresh his sister. Rajnikanth is also said to be announcing his political party by the end of this year and his fans can’t wait for it.
