The shooting of the Telugu movie Gang Leader came to a standstill with its hero Nani getting hurt on the sets. Reports are that Nani has hurt his leg and on the doctor’s advice will be on complete rest for the next week. The star, on recuperation, will be joining the sets in Delhi. The makers of Gang Leader are planning to release the film late August and have just a few weeks to complete the shooting. With Nani’s injury and the shooting halted, it may be difficult to meet the deadline but the team is racing against time to complete it.
It may be recalled that the third schedule of Gang Leader began at Shamshabad from May 14 and we hear that the filmmakers are planning to complete the entire schedule by June 30 and have locked August 30 as the release date.
The film is produced by Naveen Yerneni, Y. Ravishankar, Mohan under the banner Mythri Movie Makers with Vikram K Kumar wielding the megaphone. Anirudh is composing music for Gang Leader.
Ever since it was announced that the film is titled Gang Leader, netizens, particularly mega star Chiranjeevi’s fans, have been discussing the suitability of the title for a Nani starrer. Gang Leader is the title of one of the biggest hits that had Chiranjeevi as its main lead; therefore, his fans feel that it should be used for his son Ram Charan Teja’s films. Despite a big round of discussion going on in the social media and forums, looks like the makers of Nani’s film will be retaining the title.
With Nani ready to join the final schedule in Delhi, movie buffs hope that its release date remains unchanged.
Nani’s last film release was the sports drama Jersey which turned out to be a blockbuster hit. It was bankrolled by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under the banner of Sithara Entertainments and helmed by director Gowtam Tinnanuri.
