The team had resumed the shoot on 10th April in Hyderabad and was recently joined by actress Nayantara, who joined the cast for the final schedule. . It is said that the actress will essay the role of a lawyer and the team is working in full swing to complete her portion.
Superstar Rajinikanth who has been shooting for a couple of weeks now is said to have given his dates to complete the shoot. As per reports he has given his call sheet till the 10th of May. Given the situation, the actor is determined to finish his entire portions by the said date. Currently, the team is shooting Nayantara and Thalaiva's portion of the film.
Since eight crew members had tested positive for COVID-19 on the sets of Annaatthe, Rajinikanth's health has been the major source of concern.
