Mohan Babu's 1991 Telugu movie Assembly Rowdy is now being remade, and his son Vishnu Manchu is playing the lead role. The latest buzz in the filmnagar is that the original script of the film has completely been altered and it is made as a political saga based on the career of YS Rajasekhara Reddy's son Jaganmohan Reddy.
Assembly Rowdy is a revenge drama revolving around the story of a youngster, who takes on a few rogue politicians. Reports suggest that some corrupt politician falsely implicate him in a case and send him to jail. But people cast their votes to this innocent man, who wins the election. How he abolishes corruption after entering the Assembly and becomes the messiah of poor will form the rest of the story.
Jaganmohan and Mohan Babu's family links are quite strong. Jagan is the cousin of Vishnu's wife Vini. According to reports, Vishnu has now planned to show Jagan as a man with clean image in the movie Assembly Rowdy, which is said to expose the corrupt activities of the Congress and the Opposition TD's ineptness to corner the government.
But Vishnu Babu has slammed the reports saying that they are all baseless rumours and there is no truth in them. Talking about Assembly Rowdy, the actor admits that it is going to be a political drama, but denied that the film has any connection with Jagan Mohan Reddy's life. He adds that the film is a take on the corruption, but it is not aimed at any specific political party.
