With rising anticipation, especially after Yash’s latest release Mr and Mrs Ramachari, the makers of his upcoming film Masterpiece are ensuring that the release of the film is scheduled at the end of this year.

Director Manju Mandavya and the rest of the team are in Mysuru, completing the last schedule of the talky portions of their film. A lot of scenes related to Bhagat Singh have been shot in this schedule and coincidentally, the portions were shot on the freedom fighter’s birthday, which was on September 28.

With the Mysuru schedule coming to an end, the makers will now move on to start the song shoot. “I am glad that the movie’s schedule went on as planned. It wouldn’t have been possible without team work. Yash, the producer along with the technicians have worked painstakingly, but we have a lot more to do in bringing out a good product,” he says.

The film, produced under Hombale Films, also features Shanvi Srivastava as the female lead with Suhasini Mani Ratnam playing mother to Yash. Chikkanna is  part of the ensemble star cast too. The film has been creating a buzz with Yash essaying a negative shade while incorporating elements from Bhagat Singh’s life story.
