Manam is one of the most highly rated films of this decade in Telugu cinema and it deserves to be named as a classic too.
The movie gave Vikram Kumar such fame that in US his next two movies could cross 1 Million USD, a first for Suriya and Akhil both, with 24 and Hello.
But both did not perform as expected in Telugu states. Now, he is making Gang leader with Nani and the movie is expected to release in August. It is an investigative comedy film.
We hear that Nagarjuna and Vikram Kumar have again come together for a film and this one will be again special.
Nag suggested to him that his story can accommodate him and both his sons - Naga Chaitanya and Akhil in the film, if he changes few things. The director got excited and agreed, it seems.
The shoot of the film could start early next year or late this year after Akhil completes his film with Bhaskar produced by Geetha Arts and Naga Chaitanya will be available after January as he finishes Sekhar Kammula's film by then.
We hear Bangarraju could take time, so this could be Nagarjuna's next with all his sons and Manam, director. If this combination is confirmed, we can expect another Manam, as Nag and Vikram Kumar produced two good films in Manam and Hello, but Hello couldn't hold audiences attention due to silly reasoning in screenplay.
