Vishnu Manchu and Ram Gopal Varma’s eagerly awaited thriller Telugu film ‘Anukshanam’ will hit big screens worldwide on September 12. The movie has completed censor formalities and received an ‘A’ certification. Vishnu plays a serious police officer in hot pursuit of a psycho killer and he had to look older for the role.
Shring his views about the movie, Manchu Vishnu says, “”This is probably one of the toughest characters I’ve played till now. It’s also one of the most tiring films of my career. There are no breaks when you’re working with RGV, and it’s because he wants you to be in the character at all times. It left me mentally exhausted”.
“I had to look older like a police officer in his late 30s. So I cut my hair short, grew a moustache and lost my beard, which I’ve never done for any of my films. I also had to wear shirts that made me look older”, continued Vishnu.
This is the second time Vishnu and RGV come together after ‘Rowdy’.
“Ramu narrated the script of the film even before we shot ‘Rowdy’. When I heard the story, I was totally zapped. This is the kind of script one needs guts to do,” he said.
“In ‘Rowdy’, I had to underplay. My dad was the hero and I played a character that would hide in his shadow and come out only when needed. It was a very subtle performance. In this film, I’m under a lot of pressure throughout. It’s a very powerful character,” he said.
Also starring Navdeep, Tejaswi Madivada, Madhu Shalini and Revathy in important roles, “Anukshanam” is slated for a Sep 12 release.
Vishnu is currently busy shooting for Telugu family drama “Errabus”, a remake of Tamil film “Manja Pai”.
