But the latest update on the project was that creative director Krishna Vamsi would be directing the film, and the story will be provided by Tanikella Bharani. Manchu Vishnu plays the lead role. As of now, there is no official confirmation, but we may expect it very soon.
There is a lot of buzz happening on the film Bhakta Kannappa. Initially, there were several plans of taking the film on to the sets, but none of the plans have worked out. Later, Thanikella Bharani came forward in making the film with Sunil Verma. But Sunil has finally moved on to other films when Manchu Vishnu has come forward to play the lead role in the movie. Manchu Vishnu planned to make the film in a prestigious way with high budget and technical values. The project was announced too in the direction of Thanikella Bharani.
