Makers of 'Lie' complete 75-day US schedule

IANS  |  Chennai 

Producer Anil Sunkara of upcoming Telugu film "Lie", which stars Nithiin and Megha Akash in the lead, on Wednesday said they have completed 75 days of non-stop shooting in the US and are headed back home.

The title "Lie" stands for Love is Endless.

"Lie' team starting back after non-stop 75 days stay in the US. From Chicago airport," Sunkara tweeted.

Being directed by Hanu Raghavapudi, the major part of the film's shooting has been completed.

"Nearly 80 percent of the project was shot in the US. The remaining portion will be shot in Hyderabad over the next few weeks," a source from the film's unit told IANS.

Tamil actor Arjun plays the antagonist.

On why he chose Arjun, Hanu told IANS: "Honestly, I didn't have anyone else in mind for this role. I needed someone to play this very bold character and I could only imagine Arjun.

Hanu was very nervous to even approach him with the offer.

"I didn't even have the courage to pitch the story. I kept assuming how he will react if I approach him with a negative role but when I finally did, he liked it instantly," he said.
