YVS Chowdary, who gave hits like Devdas and Lahiri Lahiri Lahirilo, is now directing a film, tentatively titled Salim…dhummu reputhadu with Vishnu as hero. This young hero reportedly worked hard in the gym and now sports a lean and trim look for this film.
The casting coup of this film is that Mohanbabu, father of Vishnu, is playing the role of villain in this film. Though Mohanbabu started his career with negative roles, he turned into a successful hero and character actor. He has his own stamp of villainy and style of dialogue delivery.
However, this may perhaps the first time that a son and father in real life are playing hero and villain in reel life.
