Bubble doll Samantha suffering from illness was advised to stay away from shoots till 19th July . But Samantha failed to get ready by July 20 as promised. Hence Autonagar Surya shoot was delayed. But as SVSC, a high budget multi-starrer is suffering huge losses due to Sam’s absence. Therefore she decided to finish it off before working for other projects. Even though Autonagar Surya is just few days away from a wrap, Samantha didn’t give it much importance.
Autonagar Surya will have to wait until October to get three days from Samantha’s busy schedule. With this film being delayed, Naga Chaitanya too moved away to do a major schedule for Vettai remake. Director Deva Katta thought of releasing Autonagar Surya in August. Apparently it will release in December or January if there is no competition from big films.
