Vishnu Manchu’s highly anticipated passion project, “Kannappa’s Epic Adventure,” has embarked on its journey amidst the breathtaking landscapes of New Zealand. Bringing his vision to life, Mukesh Kumar Singh, renowned for his work on the “Maha Bharat” series, will take the director’s chair, while Vishnu Manchu himself will oversee the production as the film’s producer, with Ava Entertainment and 24 Frames Factory as the collaborating banners.
This cinematic spectacle is set to be a grand undertaking, promising unparalleled production values and technical excellence. Adding to the excitement, the iconic Rebel Star Prabhas will grace the film with a special role, undoubtedly elevating its appeal to new heights.
The talented trio of Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, Burra Sai Madhav, and Thota Prasad have been entrusted with the task of crafting the screenplay for the film. Vishnu Manchu recently issued an official statement to mark the commencement of the movie’s production. In his statement, he expressed his heartfelt gratitude to all those who played a pivotal role in bringing his cherished dream of creating “Kannappa” to fruition.
The statement reads: “Today, I stand in awe as the adventure of a lifetime unfolds in the picturesque landscapes of New Zealand, as we commence the shooting of ‘Kannappa.’ This dream has been seven years in the making, and its realization is a testament to the divine blessings of Lord Shiva and Parvathi Devi.
The last eight months have been nothing short of a whirlwind for everyone involved in #Kannappa. Sleepless nights became the norm, festivals were momentarily forgotten, holidays became scarce, and a good, uninterrupted 5-hour sleep felt like a luxurious indulgence. The anxiety and nervousness still linger, but our spirits remain unwavering.
Seven years ago, when the eminent Mr. Tanikella Bharani first shared the concept of #Kannappa with me, I was instantly captivated by its potential. I took it upon myself to further craft and refine the story, and I cannot express enough gratitude to the incredible talents who joined me on this journey. The support of stalwarts like Sri. Parachuri Gopalakrishna Garu, Sri. Vijendra Prasad Garu, Sri. Thotapalli Sainath Garu, Sri. Thota Prasad Garu, Directors Sri. Nageshwara Reddy Garu, and Sri. Eswar Reddy Garu has been instrumental in developing a script that promises to be larger than life.
In just a few days, a 600-strong cast and crew from around the world will converge in New Zealand to bring ‘Kannappa’ to life. Their sacrifices, leaving behind loved ones, are a testament to their unwavering belief in this project.
The unwavering support and belief of my father, who believed in me even when I doubted myself, have been the wind beneath my wings on this incredible journey. Likewise, the encouragement of my brother Vinay has been a constant source of strength and motivation.
It brings me immense joy to reveal that ‘Kannappa’ boasts a stellar cast of superstars, a list we will unveil shortly. While we have tried our best to keep details under wraps, leaks are proving challenging to contain. I earnestly request all our movie fans to trust only the official announcements from the production X (Twitter) handle regarding the cast.
As we embark on this magnificent journey, we humbly ask for your love, support, and prayers. ‘Kannappa’ is not just a project; it’s a labor of love, dedication, and unwavering belief. Our adventure begins, and together, we shall make magic happen.
Har Har Mahadev!
