Venkatesh has been simultaneously doing Shadow and Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu movies at the moment. He had plans of finishing off Shadow as early as possible as his fans are waiting to see him in a commercial movie. But he has put Shadow aside for some time and is completely concentrating upon SVSC.
Actually Venky should be in the sets of Shadow now. With a reshuffle of dates given to SVSC, he decided to finish it off and move on to Shadow's work. This has been done on the request of Mahesh Babu, who wants to wrap up SVSC on time. As Mahesh's wife Namrata is expecting new baby in August, Mahesh is in a hurry to complete SVSC. He doesn't want this film to miss out the Dussera season.
Venkatesh obliged to Mahesh's request and has put Shadow's work on hold for a while. Also he has shaved off the beard, which he was sporting for the Shadow character. Venky has to complete SVSC and then wait until the beard grows and only after that he will start working for Shadow. This shows the great bond between the two superstars.
