Director Pawan Wadyar is upset. For the last few days a fake photograph has been circulating online claiming to be a leaked or official photo shoot picture of Puneeth's new film Dheera Ranavikrama.
The photo shows Puneeth's close-up in a tantric-sadhu like pose with ash covered face and adorned with rudrakshi. There is no clarity on whether this is really from the film or not.
But on Sunday evening director Pawan Wadyer announced that this photo had nothing to do with the film and is being falsely being circulated as being from the film. The shooting for Ranavikrama continues in Hampi.
