Superstar Rajinikanth-director Siva's Annaatthe began with great fanfare but the shoot had to be abruptly stalled due to the pandemic. The team later started shoot in Hyderabad's Ramoji Film City in the Unlock phase and the entire cast had resumed regular shoot. Unfortunately, it again got stalled when 4 crew members tested positive for corona with the superstar being admitted to a private hospital in Hyderabad due to fluctuating BP levels. Later, the leads were back to Chennai but the team is yet to update on their future course of action. Now, as per industry grapevine, Rajinikanth would be resuming shoot in June/July, after Tamil Nadu State Assembly Elections in May 2021.
