Popular Director Got A Wrong Covid Report!

Tuesday, April 13th, 2021

Director “Gunasekhar” had been busy shooting for his next film, “Shaakuntalam,” with Samantha Akkineni in the lead role along with actor Dev Mohan. While shooting the film, he underwent a coronavirus test and was reported positive for the virus. So, the shooting was stopped abruptly. Later, the director once again tested for the virus and now, the result turned negative. So, Gunasekhar decided to resume the shooting. He posted on his Twitter page, “Hi Happy Ugadi to you all Yesterday I had a false positive COVID test during a routine testing activity that we do on sets upon further testing and inspection it was confirmed by doctors that I DO NOT have COVID and so I’d be resuming the shoot with all precautions in place.”

Dil Raju and Neelima Guna produce the film. After wrapping up the shooting of Shaakuntalam, Gunasekhar would direct Rana Daggubati in “Hiranyakshayap.” They had previously worked in “Rudhramadevi.”
