Producer AM Ratnam says Hari Hara Veera Mallu (HHVM), headlined by power star Pawan Kalyan, is a proper pan India film. “My Bharateeyudu was successful all over India. Some subjects demand that they should be watched by all the people. I’m sure more than the South; HHVM will do well in North India. The film’s subject is such that North people will connect to it more. We shot a sequence recently and it came out extraordinary. For the film, Kalyan garu has done action that he has never done before,” Ratnam declared. He was speaking to a news channel.

Responding to a question on the film facing multiple delays on the shoot front, he clarified, “Vakeel Saab and Bheemla Nayak were remakes, so they needed lesser days when compared to HHVM. Kalyan garu wanted to balance HHVM with Bheemla Nayak but due to COVID-19, we got delayed. He was also down with COVID-19. At times, we couldn’t get dates of other actors due to the pandemic. But it’s a film which can’t be shot continuously because of the massive set work.”

Ratnam also opened up on Pawan Kalyan’s Satyagrahi, which after a glitzy launch in 2006, was shelved. Pawan was to direct the film, a social drama which would have questioned atrocities in the society. “The film’s title idea was Pawan Kalyan garu’s. He was the director (of the film). PC Sreeram was the cameraman, while Rahman was the music director. We launched it on a grand note. As Johnny disappointed, Kalyan garu felt not to take it up,” Ratnam noted.

Moving forward, Ratnam is keen on making a sequel to his 2004 gangbuster flick 7/G Brindavan Colony. “We have an idea of making 7/G Brindavan Colony 2. Ravi Krishna will return. We are talking with Selva (Sri Raghava). After HHVM, we are thinking of starting it,” Ratnam revealed.
