Kiranraj K, who is directing the Rakshit Shetty-starrer 777 Charlie, is currently busy with spending time with the labrador dogs who are a part of the cast, as he plans to resume the shoot for this comedy-drama adventure in the first week of October.
“I have the storyboard ready, and we have been busy with rehearsals before we go on the sets,” says Kiranraj. Abiding by the guidelines set by the government, the team will begin shooting indoors in Bengaluru, for which they are coming with a set at a studio near Nelamangala.
“We are left with 30 days of shooting schedule to complete, out of which we will be shooting for six days in the city following with a small schedule in Kodaikanal, for five days. The next 20 days will be planned in Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, and Kashmir,” says Kiranraj, who is glad to get the backdrop for the scenes that he was looking for.
“I was upset about the pandemic becoming a hurdle, but fortunately, I am going back to the shooting at the right time, and in perfect weather. We will be travelling up north in November when the snowfall begins, and that’s a perfect setting for our story,” says the director, who wants to complete the entire movie by December this year. Kiranraj adds that he is ready with the first half of the film, for which he has completed dubbing, rerecording and sound effects.
“The post-production work of the first half has been completed, and the second half should be completed in three months,” he explains.
