The director of the upcoming film Valmiki, Harish Shankar, has confirmed that the shooting is completed and the film will go into the post production mode soon. Sharing some pictures from the last day of the shoot, he wrote, “ఎంత మందికో ఈ అదృష్టం........Indebted to CINEMA.......... Last day shoot of #Valmiki with full of surprises!!!!!!” While this pic has the director sharing a meal with Brahmanandam, the other pic has director Sukumar, which he has captioned, “A Small surprise from @aryasukku in #Valmiki.... thank you so much darling Sukku..for your sweet gesture!!!!! #ValmikiOnSep20th!!!!”

Reportedly, the director is playing a cameo in the film but there is no official confirmation about it. So we need to wait for Valmiki’s release on September 20 to know more.

The film has Varun Tej and Pooja Hegde playing the main lead with Atharva also included in the star cast. Valmiki will mark Atharva’s debut in Tollywood.

Valmiki is the remake of the hit Tamil movie Jigarthanda that was written and directed by Karthik Subburaj. The film has Varun Tej reprising the role done by Bobby Simha in Tamil and Atharva will be seen in the role played by Siddharth in the original. Valmiki will be bankrolled by Ram Achanta and Gopi Achanta under their banner. On the technical front, Mickey J Meyer has been roped in to compose music for this flick with Ayanaka Bose handling the camera. Chota K Prasadill edit the film.

It may be noted here that the original version in Tamil was written and directed by Karthik Subburaj with Lakshmi Menon playing the female lead and Nassar, Ambika, Karunakaran and Sangili Murugan playing the supporting roles. The film fetched the National Film Awards for best supporting actor for Bobby Simha and best editing for Vivek Harshan.
