Priyanka Jawalkar to play cop in Manchu Manoj's next
Billed as a crime-thriller, the untitled film marks the debut of short-film maker Srikanth Reddy as the director and is being bankrolled by Manchu Manoj
Priyanka Jawalkar, who shot to fame with her role in Taxiwala, is set to play a cop in Manchu Manoj's comeback film. Billed as a crime-thriller, the untitled film marks the debut of short-film maker Srikanth Reddy as the director and is being bankrolled by Manchu Manoj under his MM Arts banner.
"It's a two-heroine film and given her earlier performances, the makers felt that Priyanka fits the bill perfectly for the police officer's role. It's a character that gives her ample scope to showcase her acting prowess. The search for the other lead is on and the team is considering a newcomer for the part," reveals a source.
Production is expected to start in February. The makers will soon come out with an official announcement about the film.
Apart from this film, Priyanka will also be seen in an untitled anthology film, which is expected to hit the screens early next year.
