Will director Krish go-back to Bollywood and begin the pre production formalities officially for ‘Manikarnika?’ The prestigious production house of Sanjay Leela Bhansali has spread a green carpet before Krish to take up this project with Kangna Ranaut playing Jhansi Ki Rani title role.
If such is the respect and insistence from Mumbai cinema industry, why is Krish still shuttling between Mumbai and Hyderabad keeping the official announcement on hold?
Reports say, Krish considers Telugu film industry as his prioritized option. Post the commercial success of ‘Gauthami Puthra Satakarni,’ he first worked on a complete script ‘Veerayya’ with Venkatesh which did not work out for various reasons. Immediately, he opened Plan B approaching Mega Star Chiranjeevi with a sensational storyline and the narration went on fruitful lines.
Matter of interest says Krish is craving to work with Chiranjeevi for the immediate 151st because the script is almost locked and his own production firm First Frame is powered to invest any budget needed. But Chiru is the one to finally decide.
Krish is of an opinion that if ‘Manikarnika’ kick starts in Mumbai, a golden opportunity of directing Chiranjeevi might be missed. So, he is on tenterhooks and holding back for an answer from Mega camp. Till then, ‘Manikarnika’ has to suffer.
