Mahesh Babu's upcoming film, Sarileru Neekevvaru is one of the much-awaited films of 2020. The film starring Rashmika Mandanna in the female lead is being directed by Anil Ravipudi. The much-anticipated film will see Mahesh Babu in the role of an army officer. The first schedule of Sarileru Neekevvaru kick-started earlier this year in Kashmir. Mahesh Babu along with the team shot a major part of the film in Kashmir. Interestingly, the shooting of Sarileru Neekevvaru was wrapped a day before the abrogation of Article 370. 

The makers of the film had a difficult time to get permission to shoot in Kashmir. Also, Mahesh Babu was given every possible security at the same time. In a statement to Deccan Chronicle, producer Anil Sunkara revealed Mahesh Babu was given bulletproof security during the shooting of the film. Home Minister Rajnath Singh helped the team to get the permission. "Central Home Minister Rajnath Singh helped us to get the clearances. But we applied for bulletproof security for Mahesh, and he could reach Pahalgam because he was escorted by the security. But the vans of our production crew were not allowed to go, so we couldn't shoot from Day 1," Anil told DC.

"We had been wondering and cursing the security personnel throughout the shooting because of the restrictions we had during our shooting. But we realised the reason for those only after we heard about the announcement of Article 370. Honestly, we all breathed a huge sigh of relief," added Anil Sunkara.
