Veteran actress Jayasudha, who is acting in the Telugu film Head Constable, says that reports of an altercation with producer Chadalaveda Srinivasa Rao had been exaggerated. The actress called the incident a “minor misunderstanding” and said the film would continue shooting as per schedule. According to a source, the costume department didn’t deliver her costumes on time, and the actress was kept waiting. Consequently, she was late for the shoot, resulting in an altercation between her and Chadalavada.
Earlier, Deccan Chronicle had reported that, “Without knowing that the actress was late due to the costume department, the producer got angry and shouted at Jayasudha’s personal staff. Later, the actress came to know that the producer got angry and explained to him that it wasn’t her fault. Jayasudha has been designing her own costumes for the last 30 years and discusses her scenes with the director a day in advance for the same.”
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Jayasudha said, “It’s not a big issue, just a small misunderstanding. The director called me and said there is no delay. The shooting is going to start from December 3 onwards as per the schedule.”
Head Constable stars R Narayanamurthym, an actor known for directing and acting in left-oriented films that focus on the exploitation of socially vulnerable communities.
Actress Jayasudha was a leading actress in the 1980s and has predominantly worked in the Telugu film industry. She is the recipient of five Nandi awards and six Filmfare Awards, including one for Lifetime Achievement in 2010.
