Trying hard for something new, Rana Daggubati, the muscleman of Tollywood, is now busy shooting for what is being billed as India’s first underwater, submarine based movie. Rana, who plays a Naval officer in the trilingual Ghazi, has been shooting non-stop ever since the movie went on the floors in January.
According to a report in India Today, the period drama revolves around the mysterious disappearance of Pakistan’s premiere sub, PNS Ghazi, near the eastern coast of India, en route to the Bay of Bengal, during the 1971 India-Pakistan war.
Rana recently shot for a major underwater war sequence for the film. Being a certified diver, he didn’t require any underwater lessons for the film. However, he rehearsed a bit before canning the final shots.
“We began shooting on January 3 with the schedule drawing to a close on Tuesday. Two submarines have been created in a large pool in Hyderabad. I am currently on a 12-day
The trilingual, which is directed by Sanklap Reddy, is being shot in Hindi and Telugu and will be dubbed in Tamil. The actor’s research also involved meeting Indian Naval officers, particularly those on board the Indian naval ship.
“My father helped me get in touch with many of them including those on INS Vikrant at the time,” he added.
