Vishnu Manchu is the luckiest hero not to have any opposition for his film Luckunnodu all set to grace the theaters on January 26th.
Here’s what Vishnu says about the film:
Hurried Release Not A Problem:
Luckunnodu release was actually planned for February 3rd but with Suriya Singham 3 got postponed from Jan 26th, Vishnu thought it would be a big advantage and preponed his film for Republic Day. Will 3 days be enough to promote the film?
Yes, says Vishnu clarifying, “Off late, with promotions in TVs, internet and social media a film can easily be reached to public in all corners. Spending money cleverly is the most significant element in planning promotions.”
Vishnu Not The Hero:
Vishnu is lead actor in the film. But, according to him he is not the hero. “Dialogues are hero in this film. Though story appeared normal to me, dialogues penned by Diamond Ratnam excited me more. I was laughing throughout when first time Ratnam narrated story, that was good sign for me,” says Vishnu.
Story Based On Notes Ban:
Old and banned notes were seen on first look poster of the film which was later replaced with new notes. Curiously, the film’s story is based on notes ban.
“We’ve used CGI technology to replace notes for starting portions which we shot earlier. Fortunately, the notes ban is going to help us as the film’s concept is based on it."
Directors Have Real Star Power:
Vishnu is mostly doing hilarious action entertainers, though he experimented couple of times with Anukshanam and Rowdy. Off late, directors are coming up with unique concepts and audiences are also encouraging them.
“Only directors have the capabilities to change audience mindset. If they present any story engagingly, audience will love to watch them.
Gautamiputra Satakarni made of a novel story is the best example. Chiranjeevi did commercial films like Khaidi No 150 earlier; still it is doing wonders at BO. It’s because of the director who made them convincingly. In fact, directors have the real star power,” opines Vishnu.
There were reports that, Manchu Vishnu will be doing Bhakta Kannappa. Tanikella Bharani has already completed writing story and prewhiz process will start in April. Who is going to direct the film?
“As of now, our focus is on pre-production works. Once, everything is done, we will announce about whose helming it,” informs Vishnu.
Special Status Demand:
Taking cue from youth of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh Youth are also starting a silent protest with a demand of Special Status for Andhra Pradesh at RK Beach in Vizag on January 26th.
Several Telugu celebs and opposition parties are supporting the cause.
What’s Vishnu’s stand on it?
“Jallikattu movement is successful because it was protested in peaceful manner. Forever burning issue for me is North and South divide. Whoever and whichever the party is in the ruling, they treat South and North Indian people differently.
Better, they should divide the country as South India and North India,” asserts Vishnu.
Let’s wait and see whether Hansika Motwani becomes third time lucky for the Luckunnodu star or not because she is the romantic interest of Vishnu for hat trick time.
