Filmmaker Krish and actor Varun were all set to team up for the second time, after Kanche, for a spy thriller titled Rayabhari. However, the project, according to sources, has now been shelved owing to budget constraints.
The film was originally planned to be shot completely in Georgia. However, after recce and some pre-production work, the makers decided to drop the project as the budget estimation crossed what was initially agreed upon. Meanwhile, Varun has signed a new project with debutant Venky Atluri.
