Manchu Manoj is short of hits for a long time. Manoj despite having the good will of trying something different in his films in the audience always fell short of proper success at the box office. As a result, his market is depleting with every film. The Manchu actor has hoped that his stars will change for good with his latest film, Gunturodu but the movie has bitten dust badly at the box office. He currently has one more film – Okkadu Migaladu in the offing.
On the other side, the buzz in the Filmnagar is that Manoj is going to team up with Star Director VV Vinayak very soon. VV Vinayak just delivered a non Baahubali industry hit with Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Prestigious 150th film, Khaidi No 150 and is yet to announce his next project. Manchu Manoj did not work with a star director since Raghavendra Rao’s Jhummandhi Nadham way back in 2010. This film with Vinayak may be the last chance for Manoj to prove himself and establish as a star hero. VV Vinayak the other day attended the Birthday Celebrations of Collection King Mohan Babu in Tirupati which hints at things to come. The official announcement of the film may happen very soon.
Okkadu Migaladu is being directed by a Tamil director, Ajay Nuthakki. The movie set in the backdrop of LTTE conflict based in Sri Lanka. The actor will be playing a dual role in the film as an LTTE Tiger and a contemporary look. These looks belong to 1990 and 2016 time periods. The Manchu Hero is said to be playing an intense emotional character in the film and also has high hopes on this film as well. The makers are yet to announce their release plan. Once it is finalized, they will start their promotions.
