0

Akkineni Akhil’s third film which is being helmed by Venky Atluri is progressing at a brisk pace in and around London. Producer BVSN Prasad is spending a fortune on this project and majority of the shooting will happen in the lavish locales of London.

It is learnt that the tourism department of London is going to refund half of the budget spent for shooting there. As Akhil’s extensive London schedule is going to cost around 20 Crores, producer is going to get a refund of nearly 10 Crores as per the norms of tourism department.

London tourism department is encouraging filmmakers by reimbursing 50 percent budget spent on films for shooting in and around London. So, BVSN Prasad didn’t bat an eyelid when Venky Atluri finalized London to shoot major portion of the film. It will be big boost for the producer for sure. This is also said to be one of the reasons why our filmmakers are preferring to shoot in the UK.

Previously, the tourism department refunded some portion of the budget for Telugu films 1 Nennokidine and Nannaku Prematho which were extensively shot there.
