Hero Ram’s close shave with CoronaMay 12, 2020 08:12 AM
Ram Pothineni looks like a loaded gun every time he appears on screen and his energy levels are just amazing and unmatched when we watch him perform. Probably, that might be the reason he became famous as the ‘Energetic Star’ in TFI. Ram has recently scored a blockbuster with Puri Jagannadh’s ‘Ismart Shankar’. The lively star is now acting in RED movie under the direction of ‘Kishore Thirumala’ who made a wonderful film ‘Jersey’ with Nani.
Fortunately for the ‘Ready’ actor, he had a very close escape from Corona in February. Ram is doing a dual role for the first time in his career in Red. Nivetha Pothuraj, Amrita Aiyer, and Malavika Sharma are playing the female leads in the movie. Producer of the movie Sravanti Ravi Kishore recently shared how close they came to contacting Corona in Italy.
Ravi Kishore said that the crew along with lead pair went to Italy to shoot few songs in this country. He added that a couple of songs were shot with Ram and Malavika Aiyer in the beautiful locations of Italy. Everyone knows how badly Italy was affected by Corona and this crew went there at the same time when Corona was spreading silently but rapidly in this country. The producer stated that they shot the songs in Tuscany, Florence, Lake Garda, and the picturesque Dolomites in February. When the unit of the movie was enjoying the shoot in Italy, Bergamo which is just one and a half hour’s drive from the Dolomites was gradually turning into the epicenter of the Corona Virus.
Moreover, 17 of the 22 members of the British Sky Team who went to the Dolomites mountain range during the same time ended up infected with the virus. Recalling the close escape from the dreadful virus, Producer Sravanti Ravi Kishore expressed that only their good fate has saved them from the deadly Covid-19. He added that such incidents in life make people philosophical and their experience in Italy was one such thing.
