The regular shoot of Uday Mehta's Bachchan starring Kicha Sudeepa and directed by Shashank has been postponed by a few days to fecilitate the completion of the Sudeep's work in Shankare Gowda produced "Varadanaayaka' directed by Iyappa and also to allow the actor to go on a promotional work for his most anticipated multilingual film Eega and its Tamil and Malayalam versions which is hitting screens on July 6.
Varadanayaka will have Sudeep with a clean shaven face and a handle bar mustache which has to be changed when he starts the shooting for Bachchan. He needs to grow some beard and director Shashank wants him to look naturally with grown beard and not with any make up. The character played by Sudeep needs an intensive look and a power horse performance for which the director needs that he has to look natural every bit to carry conviction to his performance.
The shooting of Varadanaayaka will continue till 27th June or two days later. Then Sudeep could have joined the shoot of Bachchan but only for a week since he has to be part of a promotional drive of Eega in several parts of the country including in Bengaluru. Shashank had decided to shoot the sequences featuring Jagapathi Babu during the time when Sudeep was promoting his film, but he could not adjust dates of other artists. Now, it has been decided to start shooting from July 10.
The shooting that starts from July 10 will be shot on Sudeep, Parul Yadav, Bhavana and others. Now, Parul is lucky enough that she has got the role of Deepa Sannidhi and an alternative actress is being scouted for the role for which the Pyaar Ge Aagbittaithe actress was selected earlier.
Meanwhile Shashank is now busy discussing with Music director Hari Krishna about the song tunes of the film. Jagapathi Babu will be joining the shoot some time later from July 24.
