Taapsee becomes Gopichand’s bait in buzkashi adventure

Gopichand and Taapsee along with director Chandrasekhar Yeleti and few technicians had recently been to Afghanistan to shoot an action sequence on the backdrop of the unfamiliar buzkashi sport for their ongoing film. Buzkashi meaning ‘goat killing’, is the Afghan national sport about hunting mountain goats by horseriders and the one who pitches a dead goat across the goal line first wins. Now the interesting aspect is that the filmmaker literally lifted the concept of this sport and made an action sequence with Gopichand as horse-rider. Taapsee joined Gopichand on the adventure as a bait instead of a dead goat. The makers feel that this action sequence is sure to give the Telugu audiene a different experience. Earlier the 1970 adventure film ‘The Horsemen’ set in mountainous Afghanistan, had some scenes relating to this brutal sport.

BVSN Prasad is producing this untitled film on Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra banner. The unit completed two shooting schedules and resumed its next in Ladhak.
