Dr Suri, who made his directorial debut with Yash and Ramya starrer Lucky, is back with his second project Maanja, in which Anish Tejeshwar and Deepa Sannidhi will be playing the lead roles.
The film was launched on Vijayadashami and Rocking Star Yash sounded the clapboard for first shot featuring Anish and Deepa. Even though the film has been officially launched, formal shooting will start in November.
Meanwhile, the team has started shooting for the teaser featuring lead pair and other important artists. The teaser will give the audience a fair idea as to what they can expect from the team led by Dr Suri.
Even though the launch date for teaser is officially not confirmed, makers intend to attach the teaser with Rocking Star Yash's Deepavali release Santhu Straight Forward, which will give more visibility to Maanja.
Dr. Suri has revealed that this script was penned keeping Rocking Star Yash in mind but he could not do the movie with Yash, as he became busy with multiple projects after Lucky.
Now with Yash being one of the biggest stars of industry, Suri feels the script will not suit Yash anymore. This is the reason he decided to do this with a different actor and Suri roped in Anish as per Yash's suggestion.
SS Reddy and Chetan Kumar are producing the film under S2 Entertainments. Rangayana Raghu, Sadhu Kokila, Ravi Shankar, Chikkanna and Kaddipudi Chandru will play the important roles.
Director Suri has gathered a fantastic technical team for his second outing. Renowned DOP in South industry Rasool Ellore, will be cranking the camera for the film. Ajaneesh B Loknath will be composing the music.
Anil Kumar will pen the power-packed dialogues and KM Prakash is the editor. Dr K Ravi Verma will choreograph the action sequences and Tollywood choreographer Shekar will take care of the songs.
