YVS Chowdary is directing a film titled ‘Reay’ introducing Sai Dharam Tej, the son of Mega Brothers – Chiranjeevi, Naga Babu and Pawan Kalyan’s sister. The film was launched on the Vijayadasami day last year, with the blessings of the mega brothers. Later the regular shooting was to take place in USA but got postponed because of TFI strike, and due to which the unit members’ visas got expired. Hence they resumed the shooting in USA on May 26th after getting the valid visa and an approval notice and continued the shooting till April 26th. But before that the unit shot some action scenes in Malaysia. Stunt Siva choreographed these action scenes. The shooting is presently progressing in Hyderabad.
