Manjula Ghattamneni, sister of superstar Mahesh and daughter of veteran actor Krishna, will be making her directorial debut with a film titled Manasuku Nachindi. The film is being produced by her home productions, Indira Productions, and stars Sundeep Kishan and Amyra Dastur in the lead roles. The shooting of the film began recently and wrapped couple of schedules recently. The makers have now released the teaser of the Manasuku Nachindi which seems to be a breezy romantic tale. Sundeep Kishan and Amyra Dastur strike a good chemistry while the visuals of the teaser seem refreshing. The story of Manasuku Nachindi is written by Manjula herself while the dialogues in the film are penned down by Sai Madhav Burra.
The teaser of Manasuku Nachindi was launched today at an event in Hyderabad which was attended by the cast and crew of the film. Speaking at the event, director Manjula Ghattamneni said, “The story of Manasuku Nachindi is very close to my heart. And today launching the teaser of my film in the presence of my father and director K.Raghavendra Rao, I feel blessed. Raghavendra Rao is my all time favourite director because I feel he is the master in presenting actresses in a gorgeous way. I always admired my dad’s work and he is my favourite actor. I have always looked upto him and always tried to learn things from his vast experienced life.”
“While I was doing a bit of acting and trying to be one, I felt that something was missing and I felt discontent, but I could not figure it out. And eventually, I figured out that I wanted to get into story telling. Thats how i wrote and directed by first film. I want to thank my producer Kiran for believing in me and not once asking me about anything. After this film, I may become the most happening director of Tollywood, I may sound over-confident but some how I feel that,” she further added.
Speaking about the actors, Manjula further said, “I knew Sundeep Kishan was a good actor but I was shocked looking at his performance during the shoot of Manasuku Nachindi. One will understand his dedication only when you watch the film. I feel lucky to have him as my lead actor in Manasuku Nachindi.”
Lead actor Sundeep Kishan too spoke and said that he feels blessed to have worked with few big people for this film. “Manasuku Nachindi is a sweet and fresh love story, with many layers to it. This is the first time I’m doing a romantic film and I felt I should have this film long ago after doing it.”
“I have a younger sister and don’t have an elder sister and hence don’t how that relationship is. But after having done with this film, I have found one in my director Manjula. We used to fight like siblings for a minute and next minute everything was normal. I feel blessed to have worked with few big people in Mansuku Nachindi which includes Ravi Yadav who has worked on many Bollywood films and Manjula, my director, who has delivered industry hits as producer,” he further added.

Sundeep Kishan just had a release – C/O Surya – which was released simultaneously in Tamil and Telugi. Directed by Suseenthiran, the film starred Mehreen Pirzada and had a decent run at the box office. Sundeep next has a release lined up – Maayavan – in which he will be seen playing a cop. Maayavan also stars Lavanya Tripathi in the other lead role. The film was supposed to be released in August this year but could not hit the screens due to reasons unknown.
Sundeep is also shooting for Karthick Naren’s Naragasooran which also stars Arvind Swami and Shriya Saran in important roles. Speaking about it, Sundeep had said, “Both Mayavan and Naragasooran, no matter when it releases will be spoken about across the country for its content.”
It is also being reported that Sundeep Kishan may be roped in for a bilingual by classy filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon, which is yet to be confirmed. Co-incidentally, Sundeep Kishan had worked as an assistant director with Gautham Menon before taking up films as lead actor.
