Usually, Tollywood Filmmakers restrict the size of their unit when they plan to shoot in foreign countries and prefer hiring local technicians/artistes. Vamsi Paidipally, however, preferred taking Direction Department, Production Managers & other key members of the Maharshi Crew to USA. Seeking Visa for such large number of Unit Members proved costly for Team Maharshi.
US Consulate is yet to approve the Visas sought by the Makers of Mahesh's landmark 25th movie. The Unit was supposed to leave for New York on September 11th. Due to the visa issues, Foreign Schedule has been delayed till the end of the month.
Right now, Vamsi Paidipally has been filming few scenes in Hyderabad itself. That's the only way to prevent wastage of call sheets of the cast & crew.
In 'Maharshi', Mahesh Babu appears as Student and also as a Businessman. This biggie is based on love and friendship. It also have an undercurrent social message.
