The source further adds how Ajay gave his approval minutes after hearing the narration stating, “Rajamouli paid a tribute to him in ‘Makkhi’ and the two have been good friends since. Ajay gave the nod within minutes of the narration. Though it is an extended cameo, his track will remind one of his National Award-winning performance in The Legend of Bhagat Singh and sets the tone for the drama involving the two leads.”
Speaking about the film shoot, the source adds, “Around 25 per cent of the shoot still remains. With Ramoji Film City and other studios in Hyderabad opening up for shoots, Rajamouli is expected to resume work as soon as SoPs are in place.
