Vishnu Priya will be Shreyas Manju’s second film, and will be bankrolled by his father K Manju. The latter is ensuring that he gets the best for the next outing of his son, who made his debut with Padde Huli. Accordingly, the producer has chosen veteran and versatile director VK Prakash to direct Shreyas. He has chosen a plot written by SindhuSri from Dharwad, and the team is currently working on the film’s screenplay and dialogues. With a story in hand and the director on board, the makers want to hold the film’s script pooja on August 9 on the occasion of Varamahalakshmi, and are planning a grand muhurath on August 24.

Considering the fact that both K Manju and his son Shreyas are big fans of actor Vishnuvardhan, the producer, as a tribute to the actor, has yet again managed to come up with a title that bears reference to the legend’s name. More information about the subject, cast and crew will be disclosed closer to the film’s launch date. 

Manju, who was looking for original content, felt that the Kannada movie industry needed some good creative writers. The producer invited scriptwriters to come with a subject, announcing that the best one would be considered for his son’s next project. As a result, the team received 80-90 storylines, out of which they picked up SindhuSri’s plot based on a real-life incident. A team of experts, who reviewed various scripts, selected the work of this young writer, which they thought was apt for Shreyas.

The producer, who has made an equal effort in choosing the film’s director, has roped in two-time National Award-winning director VK Prakash, who started his film career in Malayalam cinema with Punardhivasam in 2006. He has so far helmed 26 films in different languages. Prakash, who has previously helmed the Kannada film Aidu Ondli Aidu (5x1=5), is also seen in supporting roles on the silver screen.
