Manchu Vishnu started his film career in 2003 with Vishnu. His performance in the film has won him much appreciation from all sections. The ease with which he portrayed the role astonished everyone. Vishnu was followed by Suryam in 2004, where he was paired with Celina Jaitley. Later he did two more movies in 2006, Asthram and Game. But it was the Dhee with Genelia which became a super hit and gave him name and fame. His latest release Krishnarjuna was an average grosser.
