When it comes to revealing details about their upcoming film, the makers of Srimurali’s Rathavara seem to be sticking to a strict code of silence. So much so that they have even restricted the number of people on the sets of the climax sequence.
Although about 150 people make up the crew, including the heroine Rachita Ram and close to a 40 member action support cast, Srimurali and his entire team are filtering entry to the sets to ensure that nothing leaks out. The actor says, “The entire film rests on the climax. Even the smallest detail will reveal everything about the film,”
The climax shoot has been taking place for close to nine days. “We started last week and we have four more days to go,” says Srimurali.
However, a few details seem to have seeped through all this secrecy. Sources state that the climax requires Srimurali to be underwater for close to 12 hours continuously! Prod the actor further and he says, “All I can say is that the shot has water elements. Also, the director wants me to look very weak for this particular sequence, so I have a strict control over my diet,” says a cautious Srimurali, adding, “I am shooting for one of the toughest climaxes of my career. And probably, it the most difficult fight sequence of my career. It feels like I have become a good actor only yesterday. I don’t know how it is going to come out on screen. All I can say is that everyone is putting in a whole lot of hard work,” he says.
