After the success of ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy,’ the Tollywood actor has started the shoot of ‘Acharya,’ written and directed by Koratala Shiva.
However, in March, the movie shooting was halted as per the government protocols to curb coronavirus spread. Now, in a bid to resume the shooting, all the movie crew members are directed to undergo a mandatory COVID-19 test. As Chiranjeevi tested positive, the film shoot is expected to delay further. However, no official announcement has been made so far.
