'PSV Garuda Vega - 126.18M', starring Angry Young Man Dr. Rajsekhar, Pooja Kumar, Kishore and others, is one of the most technically superior movies being made in Telugu film industry. Directed by the critically-acclaimed filmmaker Praveen Sattaru of 'Chandamama Kathalu' and 'Guntur Talkies' fame, it has been shot in a range of locations.
One of them is Georgia. The director made it a point to shoot in locations that haven't been explored in any other Indian film in the past. In a marathon schedule that lasted 40 days, the cast and crew shot in the Eurasian country in rather extreme climatic conditions only because the script demanded it.
"The authorities were very supportive in issuing permissions to shoot in sensitive terrains. The stunts team being highly skilled only helped matters," avers Sattaru, sharing the experience.
For about 33 days, the team had to camp in locations which are unconnected by hotels within a radius of 100 Kms!
Says Rajasekhar, who is doing his career's costliest movie (budgeted at Rs. 25 Cr), that the Georgia schedule was worth every bit!
