Sanchari Vijay’s next on selfie outrage incident?
Titled Melobba Maayavi?, the film is said to be based on a series of real-life episodes, though the tagline suggests that it might be based on a recent incident that took place in Kerala
Seems like Sanchari Vijay is in the mood to experiment. The national-award winning actor is taking every opportunity to do varied roles and to be part of different genres.
Sanchari, who has around four Kannada films ready for release and four others in post production, is now set to juggle between two Kannada films and his Malayalam debut Theatre.
The actor, who is working with Mansore for Nathicharami, has bagged yet another interesting project in Melobba Maayavi?
This film marks the directorial debut of journalist-turned-director Naveen Krishna. Chakravarthy Chandrachud, who has written the screenplay, dialogues and lyrics of Meloba Mayavi?, will also play a mildly villainous character.
The film's poster shows the first look of the actor, who is made up to look mentally ill. He is seen tied up with Chandrachud taking a selfie.
While it is said to be based on a series of real-life episodes which took place in Mangaluru, the photographs and tagline ‘War Self v/s Selfie’ reminds us of a controversial incident in Kerala. A tribal youngster was allegedly beaten to death by a crowd. A man took a selfie with this scene, sparking massive outrage.
The actor, who neither denies nor comfirms that the story is based on the aforementioned incident, says that the film is about hunger and poverty. He says it is best that the director and writer answer this question.
Sanchari Vijay will start shooting for this film from April 10, at which time it is expected that the makers will share more details about the project.
This film is dedicated to late LN Shastri, who has scored the music.
Meanwhile, the actor is gearing up for the release of his films - Varthamana, scheduled for release on March 23, followed by Krishna Tulasi and 6ne Milie. His other films Padarasa, and Aatakuntu Lekkakkilla are now in post production.
