Shreyas Manju in talks with director Nagashekar for Q
The director and actor will likely collaborate on an action drama next
As Shreyas Manju looks forward to the release of Vishnu Priya, he is in the process of finalising his next projects. The actor is in talks with director Nagashekar for an action love drama. The director has come up with Q for the title and the tag line - A Love Story of a Queen.
“I intend to work with the team that Nagashekar comes with, including cinematographer Satya Hegde, music director Arjun Janya, stunt master Ravi Varma, choreographer Imran Sardhariya, and editor Deepu S Kumar. Nagashekar has created a good story thread and an action drama with characterisation that suits me well. We will be taking this project forward after speaking to my father (producer K Manju), with whom the director and I will be sitting with the screenplay,” says Shreyas.
The Paddehuli hero, who has worked with the director before in Aramane, Sanju Weds Geetha, and Myna, says Nagashekar is a dreamer who has a passion for creating unique subjects. “I am looking forward to collaborating with him for a good entertainer,” says Shreyas.
Q will be taken up by Nagashekar after he completes his current commitment with actor Krishna. The film, titled Srikrishna@gmail.com, is produced by Sandesh Nagaraj.
Shreyas has completed shooting for Vishnu Priya, which is now in the post-production stages. The film is bankrolled by K Manju and directed by VK Prakash. It marks the debut of actor Priya Prakash Varrier in Kannada cinema. Based on a true incident, the film is set in the 1990s and has Gopi Sundar composing the music, while director Prakash has himself handled the cinematography.
