Vishal, who shot into instant popularity with Pandem Kodi, disappointed the audience with his last release Salute which was a disaster at the box-office.
According to Tollywood reports, the muhurt of his next bi-lingual film in Tamil and Telugu, has been held in Chennai. The film has been titled Pista, though it is not clear whether the same title will be retained for the Telugu version.
As usual, this film is produced by Vikram Krishna, brother of Vishal and Swamy will make his debut as director with this film. Manisarma scores the music.
