Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan who turns 53 today , is not in the mood for crowd contact on his especial day.

“He has taken off for his farm house at the outskirts of Hyderabad where he will meet only very close friends and spend the day with his family. Pawan Sir has strictly forbidden his fans from trying to reach him. He wants to spend the day with his books,” a director close to the Superstar informs from Hyderabad.

Pawan Kalyan has his one foot in cinema and the other in politics. He is now doing very limited acting work. His latest film project Krish Jagarlamudi’ s lavish costume drama Hari Hara Veera Mallu is taking longer to complete than expected.

Gossip Mongers are having a field day blaming Pawan Kalyan’s political commitments for the delay. However sources close to the project say the delay has nothing to do with Pawan.

“He is giving all of himself to Hari Hara Veera Mallu. He plays a freedom fighter during the Moghul era who is out to get the Kohinoor diamond back from the invaders. The film has complicated CGs and there are five spoken languages in the film. This is what is causing the delay. The producers and director Krish had hoped to release Hari Hara Veera Mallu for Makar Sakranti 2023. But that won’t be possible. It will now release in summer 2023,” a source close to the projects informs.

Pawan plays a wrestler in the film. And he actually got into the akadha to wrestle with real wrestlers so that the scenes look authentic.
