The shooting of the film Payanam which has Nagarjuna in the lead role has been commenced. This film is being produced by Duet Movies and directed by Radha Mohan. The director while speaking about this film said,” I have completed the first schedule of this film in Kullu Manali. This film is being produced in Tamil by Prakash Raj and by Dil Raj in Telugu. Nagarjuna who is popular in both the languages and well as he is talented is doing the lead role in this film. He is donning the role of a police officer while Prakash Raj is donning the role of a Government official.
We have chosen a new face for the heroine role. The next schedule of this film is to commence on 15th at Hyderabad. Many have the feeling that this film is based on the Kandahar plane hijack incident. There is no kind of any connection between that incident ad this film. This film is a thriller. The action will be there with logic and also with me emotional and sentimental in my style.”
