Ram Gopal Varma is set to direct Manchu Vishnu in his next film. The maverick director, who is struggling to regain his touch, will be hoping that the star turns his fortunes around.
Confirming the news, Manchu Vishnu says that he will be working with RGV once the multi-starrer he is currently doing with his father and brother is complete.
Though RGV’s last few films were flops, Vishnu says that he believes in the director’s talent. “RGV is a brilliant director, no doubt about it. He came with a very good subject which excited me. I am sure one will remember the director as he was in his old days with this film,” says a confident Vishnu, adding that it would not be a thriller or about the underworld.
Though Vishnu’s next film is supposed to be with Puri Jagannath, a source says that he wanted to do the RGV film first as he liked the subject very much.
The Manchu family has been quite close to Ram Gopal Varma in recent times and both Manchu Lakshmi and Manchu Vishnu had attended the audio release of 'Satya 2'.
