With Telugu new movies not releasing and existing movies that were lined up for and cannot be shot the cost of production increases everyday.
Ine such Telugu film is V by Nani. But, with little glimpse of light, Nani’s V Telugu cinema which was previously expected to get a theatre release on 3rd of May is now back on shooting floor for its last leg of work. Nani took to Instagram to post his beard face get up and captioning it as the first day post lockdown shoot.
