Power Star Pawan Kalyan signed three movies on his comeback stint. One of them is under the direction of Krish, tentatively titled Virupaksha.
Touted to be a period drama, the film's director Krish planned a couple of schedules in foreign. Since he has experience of shooting period films already with Gautamiputra Satakarni, Manikarnika and Kanche, he knew some beautiful locations in other countries which will suit for Pawan's film. Krish wanted to shoot some fight sequences and other scenes in ancient forts.
With Corona Crisis all over the world, Krish backed out of the plan to shoot the film abroad. The Corona Crisis did enough damage for the unit and Krish is now doing the damage control by shifting the shoot to Ramoji Film City.
With limited crew, Krish wants to get sets erected and complete the shoot in Ramoji Film City. With this, he can also save the budget for the movie. The shoot resumes once the government grants the permission.
