Mohan Babu films thrilling action scene for ‘Gayatri’

Actor Mohan Babu filmed a thrilling action sequence for “Gayatri”.

He shot it at the Ramoji Film City.

“It was an absolute happiness to direct an obsessive artist like him and see him perform,” Kanal Kannan, the film’s action director, said in a statement.

Mohan Babu performed the stunt rig action sequence with style, and a lot of planning and practice was involved in order to minimise the risks, Kannan said.

Nero Motion control rig is being used for adding visual effects in “Gayatri”, in which Mohan Babu plays the hero as well as the villain. This rig is used to capture the fight sequence between the two of them.

According to the statement, the film’s makers had especially flown in a stunt rig from Australia, coupled with a well-planned stunt design and stunt co-ordinators, to create a unique visual spectacle for a fight scene.

The fight sequence is being shot for the last eight days and will continue for another three days. The shooting was halted for four days because of the birth of Mohan Babu’s son Vishnu Manchu’s baby.

Vishnu Manchu also features in “Gayatri” as a romantic character opposite Shriya Saran. The film will release on February 9.
