Pawan Kalyan actually announced his retirement from films after the release of his 25th film Agnyathavaasi, because he wanted to concentrate on his political career. However, due to various reasons, the actor decided to make a comeback to films and made his grand re-entry with Vakeel Saab in 2020. Since then, there have been a lot of delays in his film shoots as he was splitting his time between movies and politics.
Many films got delayed as a result, and Hari Hara Veera Mallu suffered the most because of it. It is now being said that Pawan is going to take a break from politics for a few days, and going to begin shooting for Ustaad Bhagath Singh from the first week of September.
While this is being said, it has to be seen how much truth there is to this, given that Pawan seems to be very busy with his political career, as the general elections are near for Andhra Pradesh. On the other hand, Ustaad is a remake of the Tamil film Theri, which is directed by Harish Shankar, while Sree Leela is the leading lady of the film.
