Gayatri first look: Mohan Babu back to his roots
The veteran actor will be playing a dual role in the film, which is produced by his son Vishnu Manchu, who also co-stars in it
Actor Vishnu Manchu says his father and veteran actor Mohan Babu looks “ferocious” in his villainous avatar in the upcoming film Gayatri. The 67-year-old star will be seen playing the dual roles of hero and villain in the film.
Speaking about the Pedarayudu actor’s look, Vishnu said in a statement: “It’s very ferocious. His one liner dialogues will be equally overpowering and truly reflect his unparalleled mastery over dialogue delivery.”
Vishnu has produced the film and will also feature in it alongside Mohan Babu, Shriya Saran and Anasuya Bharadwaj.
Talking about his role, Vishnu Manchu said: “As an actor, this role is an acid test for me. It is a breakaway from the roles I have played over the years. As a producer, this is among the coolest films I have produced. Everything fell in place because of my father’s presence on sets.”
Directed by Madan of Pellaina Kothalo fame, Gayatri is set for release on February 9, and will be up against Varun Tej-starrer Tholi Prema at the box-office.
