Mohan Babu’s hit film Assembly Rowdy (1991) is being remade by Vishnu Manchu. The story is tweaked to reflect the present political scenario in Andhra Pradesh and it is believed that Vishnu will play the lead role which is more or less modelled on that of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, YSR Congress chief and Kadapa MP who is now lodged in Chanchalguda jail on charges of accumulating illegal assets.
However, in the film Vishnu playing Jagan will be shown how he is duped by other political parties and becomes a victim of political conspiracies. He contests from jail and wins the elections. He then enters the State assembly to cleanse the political system.
The film is said to have been finalised after Mohan Babu paid a visit to Chanchalguda to meet Jagan. Incidentally, Vishnu’s wife Veronica Reddy is the niece of Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, the late Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
