“Earlier, we had planned to shoot the song sequences in Iceland, but it was worth an experiment shooting in this location,” Nagarjuna said in a statement. “It turned out to be far more suited to the sequence. I had some fantastic moments while shooting for a song sequence in the castle,” he added.
The castle, perched on a 123-metre cliff, is said to be the hideout for the rebellious knight Erazem of Predjama, a “robber baron”.
Nagarjuna is paired opposite Richa Gangopadhyay in the film. Directed by Veerabhadram Choudry, it also features Sonu Sood, Rahul Dev, Mukul Dev, Ashish Vidyarthi, Brahmanandam, and Jayaprakash Reddy in important roles.
Currently in post-production stage, “Bhai” is produced by Nagarjuna’s home banner Annapurna Studios. Devi Sri Prasad has composed music for the movie.
It is scheduled for a September release and the film will see Nathalia Kaur and Hamsa Nandhini in two different item numbers.
