Gunasekhar has a reputation for building lavish sets in most of his films and he got rave reviews for the sets designed for films like Okkadu and Arjun. As per the latest reports, his latest film Rudramadevi is going to set a new benchmark in his career in terms of grandeur. It’s the first historical India film which is being shot in the 3D format and already, 35% of the film has been wrapped up. The next schedule is going to begin from July 3 in Annapurna Seven Acres studio and several important scenes and a song are going to be shot in this schedule.
Interestingly, reports suggest that Gunasekhar has spent nearly Rs 5 crores on the jewellery which Anushka is going to wear in the film.
