Shreyas Manju's next is a romcom
The film is based on a story written by Naga
Shreyas Manju, who is looking forward to the release of his upcoming film, Vishnu Priya, is getting ready to star in a romcom and has completed his screentest for it.
“The film is based on a story written by Naga, a Chennai-based writer. I heard it during the making of Vishnu Priya. The concept interested me, and I gave my nod. The shooting will begin in summer,” says Shreyas Manju, adding, “The styling for this character was done by choreographer-director Imran Sardharyia, and the photos were shot by KISS cinematographer, Arjun Shetty.”
Shreyas is now on the hunt for a director who can do justice to the script and his character. “We are working on the screenplay, and after that, the decision will be taken on the director, cast, and crew. This project will have Imran Sardhariya choreographing the songs, and he will be part of the creative team as well,” he adds.
Shreyas, who wants to make his mark in other languages too, plans to make this Kannada film in Malayalam and Tamil. “Vishnu Priya is also releasing in Malayalam, and I felt it is the right time to mark my presence in Tamil cinema as well, and the script has been written accordingly,” he says.
Meanwhile, the actor has another film going on floors in January, which he hints is a multi-starrer. “I am waiting for the production house to reveal the details,” he says.
On the other hand, Vishnu Priya, directed by VK Prakash, is ready to hit the screens. But the makers plan to release it only when the government permits full occupancy in theatres. The film, produced by K Manju, has Gopi Sundar’s music. It also marks the Kannada debut of Malayalam actor Priya Prakash Varrier.
