A year ago, young hero Manchu Manoj met with a car accident and sustained with injuries. He had to take bed rest for two months and could not attend workouts as well. This led to growing up of extra fat. Even then, Manoj was not threatened by the accident and is doing movies regularly. His 'Potugadu' was a decent hit among his latest ventures. Apart from being the actor, he proved his mettle as an action choreographer, a specialist in gymnastics etc. He is currently on the process of reducing the weight for his next projects.
Currently, Manoj is working for the new movie 'Current Theega'. Sunny Lione is playing the role of a traditional girl in saris and her character is going to be one of the highlights of the movie. G.Nageswara Reddy is directing this movie while Vishnu is producing the movie. Manchu Manoj is celebrating his birthday on 20th May. Cinejosh wishes him many happy returns of this day.
