Shaadi Bhagya, remake of the Telugu hit film Pelli Choopulu is all set to go on the floors this week. However, there has been a small change in the team.

The film was supposed to be helmed by choreographer-turned-director Murali Master. However, he backed out because of date issues. The director’s chair will now be adorned by SriNarasimha, who will be making his directorial debut.

Pavan Wadeyar

The first timer, who has been an associate to Pavan Wadeyar, will be turning independent director with Shaadi Bhaagya. He has also worked with the Ramesh Arvind’s Pushpaka Vimana team.

Producer Harsha Khasnis confirmed this to City Express. “I was told that Murali Master has a prior commitment and wasn’t able to give his time for us. Since we had to start the shoot, we brought in Narasimha, considering his experience.”

While Shaadi Bhagya will feature Shraddha Srinath as the lead actress, another interesting news is that Pavan Wadeyar of Govindaya Namaha fame has been roped as the protagonist.

Pavan’s first stint as an actor was with Baahuparak in a guest role. He later played the lead in Preethi Geethi Ityaadi, which released in 2014. According to Pavan, he came into the industry to be an actor, who added that which is why he decided to star in Shaadi Bhagya. “I am just fulfilling the cravings of the actor in me.

Moreover, the character in the film, is mostly like me in real life,” he says. Pavan, who is working on the character, says, he has shed 15 kilos to fit the bill. The shooting has been scheduled at one stretch for 25 days in Jindal and the makers are planning for a muhurath in between.
