Super Star Mahesh Babu's sister Manjula is making her debut as director with a romantic entertainer Manasuku Nachindi starring Sundeep Kishan and Amyra Dastur slated for grand release on Feb 16.
Speaking to scribes Manjula said, “When I expressed a wish to direct film, my husband encouraged right from start. My dad Super Star Krishna got extremely thrilled. He even lauded me when I convinced a producer to bankroll.
But when I conveyed the same to my brother Mahesh Babu, I got a surprising answer. He questioned me whether do I become mad. He spoke as if direction is extremely difficult. After sharing my thoughts, views and plans with him, he too got confidence on me. After watching the teaser, Mahesh could not stop his anxiety. Though Mahesh is not physically present in the film, technically he is present with voice over. I am waiting for Mahesh Babu to say ‘Manju, I am waiting to star in your direction.’ Hope, the day will come soon.”
