Mumbai: Ram Gopal Varma is thinking business in times of recession. Varma’s latest directorial film Agyaat which is currently being shot in Sri Lanka will launch south actor Nitin Reddy in Bollywood and starring alongside him is Priyanka Kothari, earlier known as Nisha Kothari.
Agyaat is being made in Hindi language originally and will later be dubbed into Tamil and Telugu languages. A source informed, "The advantage of having an actor like Reddy from the South is that the Telugu dubbed version rights are pre-sold for Rs four crore approximately even before the film is ready. Reddy himself will dub the film in Tamil and Telugu languages. The film is being made on a budget of Rs six crore."
Reddy is an Andhra Pradesh based actor-producer and distributor N Sudhakar Reddy’s son.
Agyaat went on floors last week in Sri Lanka. The movie’s shooting is likely to wrap up by January end after which the movie will go into post production and visual effects.
The movie is a creature based thriller-horror movie. The story is about a film unit shooting in Sri Lanka and how the cast and crew of the film are attacked and killed by a ferocious creature.
