Pavan  who is currently in Bellary district at the Jindal Factory for the climax says, “It is a high-powered dynamic gun, which is unique and a first of its kind weapon used in a Kannada film. I along with fight master Ravi Varma designed the gun and it was assembled with some parts being imported from outside.The gun is constructed in such a way that it is capable of shooting 16 bullets in just one go and in circular motion.The gun will be used in one of  scenes to be shot with Puneeth. I will not reveal the details of this particular sequences but it will be one of the best stunt scenes ever.”  Ravi says, “It was Pavan’s concept and we didn’t want to use the regular guns. We watched Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone films and then created this special weapon.”

The makers of the film have invested a whopping Rs 1.25 crore in the climax. “This is my third film and definitely it needs to have some new benchmarks,” says Pavan. The climax will be shot across over 18 days. “We have stunts that will go on for 13 days. The last four days, we be will shoot with the villain. This will be one of the most talked about climax fights,” Ravi adds. Pavan is planning to complete the shoot by January 13. He signs off, “I will be reaching Italy on January 16 while Puneeth Rajkumar and team will join me from January 18.”
