After scoring back to back hits with Subramanyam for sale and Supreme, Sai Dharam Tej was set back by the failure of his last venture Thikka. Currently, he is shooting for yet another commercial film Winner which is being directed by Gopichand Malineni. The team just came back after wrapping up a long schedule abroad.
Speaking in an interview, Gopichand said that they shot two songs in Ukraine. After that, the team moved to Istanbul to shoot the climax. Gopi said that the climax will be a nail-biting horse racing sequence featuring Sai Dharam Tej and villain Thakur Anoop Singh. The team will now move to Ooty where the next schedule starts from December 6. Later one more schedule will be there in Bangalore. Starring Rakul Preet as the heroine, this film is slated to release in February 2017.
