Hyderabad: ‘Music School’, being directed by Papa Rao Biyyala, wraps its fun-filled fourth schedule comprising scenes between Shriya Saran, Sharman Joshi and Shaan in Goa. A significant chunk of the talky portion of the musical has been shot in the tourist’s paradise with scenic locales and beaches in the backdrop. With this wrap up in Goa, 95% of the film is shot.
Shaan, who wraps his portion of the musical, says, “I had a wonderful time shooting for ‘Music School’. The entire cast and crew is like a big family. We had a wonderful time, especially the children, they’re always so enthusiastic and so full of life. We’re going to miss all the fun that we had. I can’t wait to see how the film shapes up. I’m hoping to meet up at the reunion party once the film is ready for release. Until then, my best wishes with Papa Rao ji and the entire crew of ‘Music School’.”
The director cast Shaan for a critical role in the film after watching him sing a song for the film in Ilaiyaraaja’s recording studio in Chennai. Papa Rao was looking for a flamboyant persona for this role and he thought the singer fitted the bill. This schedule also wraps up the shoot of the second leads of the film Ozu Barua and Gracy Goswamy, who, the director remarks, did a wonderful job. This teen duo has something special in store for the audience.
The ultimate experience of the director in this schedule was to direct veteran character actors like Benjamin Gilani and Suhasini Mulay. Papa Rao says, “It was a great pleasure to work with such erudite actors. The DOP of the film, Kiran Deohans, has captured some mind-blowing shots of the scenic beauty of Goa. The fourth schedule was quite special. I’m happy that we shot here; it is one of the most visually striking States of our country. We can’t wait to get started on the final song of our musical in Hyderabad.”
