The latest buzz says that the film has been shelved as Pooja Gandhi is running out of the money to shoot the film further. The crew had started the shooting of the movie on November 25.
Speaking to a leading daily, Pooja Gandhi denied the rumours and said, "That is not true. We have finished eight days of shoot. Some scenes of Makrand Deshpande and Ravishankar have already been shot. Meanwhile, I got busy with Thippajji Circle and after completing the film, I will resume work on Abhinetri."
Abhinetri is a female centric movie, which is directed by Sathish Pradan. Multilingual actor Atul Kulkarni was also roped in to play an important role in the movie. "I might have accepted Thippajji Circle on short notice, but that was not for money, but for the role. I play a sex worker in the film and that is a wonderful role. That is why I agreed to do the film immediately and postponed Abhinetri," Pooja added.
However, Pooja Gandhi is busy with the shooting of Thippaji Circle, which is being directed by Chikanna. The movie is based on the real life story of Thippaji, who was a Devadasi by profession.
