Jiiva was set on completing Rowthiram and getting the film released soon but the shooting did not progress as the unit had planned. Shriya, who was signed up to play Jiiva’s pair in Rowthiram, was busy with Don Cheenu and Chikku Bukku and hence could not allot dates for Rowthiram.
The team, however, completed two schedules without the lead actress and waited patiently for her dates. Their patience seemed to have paid off now with Shriya finally joining the Rowthiram team. Sources say that nearly half the film has been shot without the lead actress.
