The film is notable for being the first Indian movie shot with the DIY Arri Alexa 65 camera. Prabhas’ solo scenes were delayed from April 2022 due to his knee surgery, affecting his other projects like “Salaar” and “Kalki 2898 AD.”

By the end of this schedule, Prabhas had completed most of his scenes. Filming was projected to conclude by January 2023, with post-production extending another eight months.

Unexpected delays continued, with Bachchan injuring his ribs in March 2023. By June 2023, 70% of the film was completed. A romantic sequence with Prabhas and Disha Patani was filmed in Italy in March 2024, wrapping up principal photography on May 28.
