Principal photography completed on October, 2018. By that time, only 10 days of patch work left. Krish wanted to do that patch work and to direct N. T. R. simultaneously. But after that Sonu sood left the project and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub came in. With this change, the movie team was in the situation that they had to shoot all the scenes which involved Sonu Sood again. As Krish was busy in directing NTR movie, Ranaut took over direction.
