Veteran actor Mohan Babu along with his son Vishnu Manchu adopted eight villages from Chandragiri constituency in this coronavirus lockdown period. They are providing two meals on a regular basis for all the poor families in these villages. Mohan Babu and Vishnu will continue to serve them till the lockdown gets lifted. They are also supplying eight tons of vegetables on a regular basis at this crucial time. Mohan Babu and Vishnu are ensuring that they would help the needy in all these eight villages during the lockdown time.
During a recent interview, Manchu Vishnu was asked about why several top directors keep away from the Machu compound. He responded calling involvement a misconception. “I worked with successful directors like Srinu Vaitla, Sriwass, Nageshwar Reddy, Deva Katta, and others. They never faced any problems with me our my family. I am now working with a bunch of debutants. There are no such complaints. I shamelessly asked a couple of directors to work together from the past six to seven years but they never materialized” said Vishnu.
“During my break, I read a newspaper article and it is from this, the idea of Mosagallu emerged. I hired a team of writers from Los Angeles and got the script ready. The film was initially planned in English. When one of my friends asked me to make it in Telugu, we shot Mosagallu in Telugu too. The film will release this year in Telugu and English languages. The Telugu version releases on June 5th and we are planning International screenings for the English version in July” said Vishnu.
Manchu Vishnu has not been consistent in Telugu cinema as an actor. He tasted a series of disasters and after a long break, he is all set to test his luck with Mosagallu. The film is made in Telugu, English languages and will release in June. The film is made on a huge budget and the actor has all his hopes on this film. Mosagallu is all about the story of a brother, sister who are involved in a scam of Rs 2700 crores in USA.
Vishnu Manchu has been working on various projects and he will announce five new projects after June. His long delayed project Bhakta Kannappa is very much on said Vishnu. Among the five projects, Vishnu will play the lead role in three of the films. He will produce the other two projects. Vishnu said that he is keen to introduce several new directors to Telugu cinema in the coming days.
Young Rebelstar Prabhas is the darling of many and the actor is known for his simplicity and down-to-earth nature. The actor recently paid his visit to Mohan Babu’s residence and spent ample time with his family. He interacted with Manchu Vishnu and clicked some pictures with them. Mohan Babu and Prabhas worked together in Bujjigadu. Prabhas returned from his London holiday recently and will resume the shoot of Jaan from next month.
Hero Manchu Vishnu who took some time, has readied four projects. Among the four, Vishnu will feature in two and he will bankroll the other two. All these four projects are launched on Sunday with Collection King Mohan Babu gracing the low key ceremony as chief guest along with Manchu family.
The first film of Vishnu will be an action drama and have Kajal Aggarwal. The second film is going to be a Hollywood film to be directed by Jeffery Chin. This film will have a prominent Hollywood film and also international renowned technicians.
The projects Vishnu will bankroll are a feature film and a web-series. The film is touted to be a new age thrilled titled ‘Mira Road’ and a newcomer will direct it. The web-series is a political drama and will feature senior actor Srikanth.
All in all, Vishnu really took time to line up interesting projects with different content.
Talented actress Kajal Aggarwal is rushed with several offers and she is quite busy currently. The actress who loves picking up exciting scripts is all set for Hollywood debut. Tollywood actor Manchu Vishnu is producing a film that will be made in Telugu and English simultaneously. This women-centric film will feature Kajal in the lead role. A Hollywood director will helm the project.
The details are yet to be announced officially and the regular shoot kick-starts later this year. Kajal is all excited about the film and she will be seen in a new look which is never seen on screen. Vishnu will produce the film and the other lead actors, technicians are being finalized currently.
Manchu Vishnu who has been struggling with disasters wrapped up the film Voter long ago. The film’s release has been finally announced for June 21st. The film’s director GS Karthik and Vishnu are not in good terms because of the credits of the story. The film’s release hurdles even increased because of the drift between Vishnu and Karthik. With the makers announcing the release date, the duo decided not to support the project.
There are speculations that Vishnu at any cost is in plans to stall the film’s release. He even will not be promoting the film and will not attend the promotional activities of Voter. GS Karthik, the director too is not overlooking the post-production work. John Sudheer Pudhota produced the film on Rama Reels banner. We have to wait to see how the producer releases the film overcoming all the hurdles.
It is known news that, actor Manchu Vishnu attracted criticism for his earlier comments regarding intermediate results goof up in Telangana. In his earlier comments on board of intermediate mistake, he advised the system should change instead of criticizing ruling TRS party or other culprits. His comments drew ire from netizens as they questioned Manchu family’s dual standards with respect to the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Now Manchu Vishnu went extra mile and played the role of spokesperson for TRS party and defended KCR and KTR strongly.
He tweeted, “Some factions are also stating that the film fraternity are “scared” of Mr. KCR and I’d like to say that these people have a great imagination. There is no truth to this. My concern lies primarily in finding the reasons first so we can prevent such an atrocity in the future. We live in a democracy, and as far as I know KTR is a very proactive and pro student politician & yes Mr. KCR is known to be a firebrand but for a reason and he isn’t a dictator. So instead of blaming the T Govt, I would stress on concentrating first to know the real cause. It’s unfortunate and horrible that we have lost 20 brothers and sisters because of the mistakes and our deepest condolences lie with their families. I strongly believe that if the Govt does not react to this heinous act, then it surely attracts criticism.”
However, his comments received wide criticism from netizens. Many people questioned whether Manchu family had responded the same way if the issue had occurred in the state of Andhra Pradesh. it is known news that Manchu Mohan Babu made it a very big issue regarding pending dues of fee reimbursement from AP government. Some other found fault with Vishnu saying KCR is not a dictator and they asked Vishnu to make one negative comment on TRS government and find himself whether KCR is a dictator or not. A few others even attributed motives for the statements of Manchu Vishnu and told that Vishnu has corporate schools are running in Hyderabad and that’s why he is scared of passing even slightest negative remark on KCR government. A few others alleged that some members of Manchu family were there in drugs case but their names were not revealed to media and that’s why Vishnu is reciprocating now towards KCR government.
Will have to wait and see how Vishnu response to all these comments.
Young actor Manchu Vishnu is on a break from some time and hasn’t announced any projects in the recent times. Manchu Vishnu has been residing in USA and is preparing for his next projects. The actor is working on Kanappa from some time and the script of the film is penned by veteran actor and writer Thanikella Bharani. A team of Hollywood technicians are working on the project from some time.
The latest news says that a Hollywood director was extremely impressed with the script and joined the project to direct Vishnu’s prestigious project. Along with this, Vishnu also heard an interesting script and is in plans to make it in English. On the whole, the Manchu actor is busy with a couple of big budget projects that will be made on his home banner and he is currently monitoring the pre-production work of these projects.
More than a year since it was announced, the shooting of Manchu Vishnu-starrer ‘Voter’, a Telugu-Tamil bilingual, is finally over. Speaking to telugu360.com, film’s writer-director G Karthik Reddy informs that the re-recording too got completed freshly and they will kick-start the promotion campaign shortly. So, what led to the delay and why the low-key shooting? He maintains that since the film is set in a political backdrop, they didn’t want any unnecessary controversies surrounding it. “Also, it’s a proper bilingual wherein we shot sequences for both the versions. We had different set of actors too and at times they got busy, causing our shoot to be delayed.”
Karthik avers that Vishnu plays a software professional in the film, which he dubs as an intense drama. “He loves his country and the right to franchise more. When he feels that a voter is taken for a ride by the elected representatives, he sets off on a journey which makes the film,” he shares, while adding, “It talks about the power of voter. Vishnu’s part believes voters as kings and the elected as ones who should be at the service of voters. He’d rather ensure the elected works for him than he becoming another elected representative.”
Isn’t Vishnu known to interfere in the creative process of a film? “I can’t talk about other films but as far as film is concerned, he didn’t. If we have a strong content, we can convince anyone,” he declares, adding, “He did give his suggestions though. Since the film was being made in Tamil too, he wanted more Tamil technicians on board.”
He believes that Vishnu has given his career best performance in ‘Voter’, which also features Surabhi, Posani Krishna Murali and Sampath Raj. “There’s a two-minute monologue which he shot for, in the first take itself! He was required to get emotional in between and he was simply spot on with his act,” Karthik exults, further revealing that ‘Voter’ will be to Vishnu what ‘Assembly Rowdy’ was to his father Mohan Babu.
He is confident that the aam janta will be proud of the film once it opens. “I’m hopeful that most people will exit the cinema halls with their collar-up. They’d feel the film reflected their inner emotions and that Vishnu represented them rightfully,” he ends.
Tollywood actor Manchu Vishnu has been closely following the recent happenings in Tollywood. After MAA rejected a membership to actress Sri Reddy, there has been a large outburst by her on various celebrities and their families. Soon MAA re-considered its decision and accepted to offer a membership to Sri Reddy which turned out to be huge surprise. Vishnu called it a huge embarrassment. Shattered with the acts of MAA and the consequences, Vishnu penned an open letter to MAA addressing it’s President Sivaji Raja. Here is the letter:

Manchu Vishnu’s Voter first look
Actor Manchu Vishnu is coming up with an interesting political saga which has been titled as Voter. Karthik of Adda fame is the film’s director and Surabhi is the leading lady. The first look poster of Voter has been unveiled on the eve of Vishnu’s birthday.
The poster featuring Manchu Vishnu in a fierce look with a background collage of many politicians is interesting. The poster depicts the theme of the film very well and it portrays that a common man who votes to the politicians has every right to question them. It looks like the film explains the power and rights of a voter in a democracy.
Interestingly, the poster features the images of some of the current political leaders in Telugu states.
The shooting formalities of Voter are nearing completion and the makers are planning to release the film very soon.
Manchu Vishnu who got injured during the shoot of his next film Achari America Yatra in Malaysia took rest and recovered after which he flew to USA to shoot for the movie.

Manchu Vishnu responded on recent controversy going on critics and reviewers. Manchu Vishnu indirectly supported Tarak’s comments today through his twitter account. It is known that previously NTR started this attack on revieewers recently and Mahesh Babu gave statement in support of reviewers.
Today Vishnu responded – “When a movie is watched with attention, correct review can be given. Respectable reviewers do not give updates while watching a movie.” So, Vishnu, though didn’t fully oppose movie reviews, he opposed Live updates of the movies.
