The makers of veteran actor Manchu Mohan Babu-starrer upcoming Telugu film “Gayatri” have erected a 50 feet hanuman idol to be used as part of a song which is currently being shot in Tirupati. “The 50-feet hanuman idol will be biggest attraction of the song. Bollywood choreographer Ganesh Acharya is composing the moves for the song, which will witness the participation of over 400 dancers and 100 junior artistes,” a source from the film’s unit told a leading news agency.
The song has been crooned by Shankar Mahadevan. Mohan Babu is bankrolling the film and he is said to have spent a bomb on the song. “He didn’t mind making it a costly affair as it’s a very special song in the film. He roped in the best in the business to make the song look really grand,” the source said. Over half of the film, being directed by Madan, is shot in Tirupati.
Gayathri will also feature Manchu Vishnu in a pivotal role. Reports also indicate that Mohan Babu will be seen in a unique look in Gayathri which will be a never seen before one in his career. Said to be an intense action flick, Gayathri will also feature Anasuya Bharadwaj in the role of a journalist.
Mohan Babu, who was last seen in Mama Manchu Alludu Kanchu alongside Allari Naresh and Ramya Krishna, will be making a comeback with Gayathri. Mama Manchu Alludu Kanchu also featured Meena in a pivotal role.
