Dammu, which started regular shooting in May itself, was put on hold as NTR Jr was keen to complete Oosaravelli. When the shooting was to restart from November, Shruthi Hasan expressed her unavailability because of date problems. She had given bulk dates from April to September for Dammu and shot for ten days for the film.
There was news that Kajal Agarwal will replace Shruthi, but she is busy with Mahesh Babu’s The Business Man and Surya’s Tamil-Telugu film Maatraan.
NTR Jr and Trisha will be seen for the first time as lead pair on screen with Dammu.
