Currently in the last leg of production, Aghori has Mime Gopi, Riyaz Khan and Sruthi Ramakrishnan among others in prominent roles.”
At a set resembling Haridwar, erected at MGR Film City, we spotted veteran actor Sayaji Shinde dressed as an aghori. Seen along with him were a few other artistes, who, too, were in similar get-up. A few members of the crew were seen setting up a Shivalingam on the spot while a few others were monitoring the arrangements required for blue screen technology. Debutant director Rajkumar, who asserts aghori as a first-of-its-kind project, says that around 200 people were auditioned to portray the role of aghoris.
Finally, many of them were chosen based on their features, hairstyle, etc, and all of them had attended a workshop for a week. Rajkumar says, “Aghori is a bilingual, and will be released in Telugu with a different title.
