A section of media in Tollywood has reported that Maya and Game Over director Ashwin Saravanan's new film with Samantha Akkineni has been put on hold and he will be making a new film Taapsee.
However, when Sify.com asked the director, he said: "It’s not true. I don’t understand how they keep writing stuff without confirming with the filmmaker. We are living through a pandemic and the priority now is to just stay safe and get through it".
Samantha had earlier confirmed in various interactions that she is a part of Ashwin's film. However, due to the pandemic, the shoot is yet to kick off. We hear that Sony Pictures India will be bankrolling the film and Prasanna is also likely to play an important role along with Samantha.
If all goes well, the yet-untitled film will go on floors by the end of this year or early next year.
