Filmmaker Prasanth Varma on Saturday took to Twitter to announce his next project which will be Telugu cinema’s first original superhero film. He revealed that the film will be titled Hanu-Man.
Prasanth rose to fame with his National award-winning Telugu film Awe. He recently made Telugu cinema’s first zombie film called Zombie Reddy.
“This time I’m coming with my favourite genre! Fasten your seat belts to dive into a new cinematic universe! “HANU-MAN” The First Original Superhero Film in Telugu.”
Along with the tweet, Prasanth also shared an introduction video in the movie. He still hasn’t confirmed the film will be made as an animated feature or into live action.
The cast and crew will be finalised and announced soon.
Meanwhile, Prasanth Varma recently confirmed in a media interaction that he is working on Awe sequel. He said, "Yes, it is officially in the works. I’m ready with the script. We intend to take the Awe franchise forward with the sequel."
Elaborating more about the project, he said, “Awe 2 is going to be completely different. The screenplay and story line will be heavy and intriguing. Unlike part one, which had multiple stories running parallel, this film will have just one story. But rest assured, this film will be a crazy experiment; something that has never been explored in Tollywood before."
Actor Nani had produced Awe, a multi-genre film featuring an ensemble cast of Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menen, Regina Cassandra and Avasarla Srinivas.
Two years ago, Prasanth directed Tamannaah Bhatia starrer That Is Mahalakshmi, the Telugu remake of Vikas Bahl’s Queen. Prashant had to join the project midway after filmmaker Neelakanta, who was originally signed to direct, opted out following some differences with the makers.
