A couple of weeks ago, the news of star director V.V. Vinayak turning hero came as a big shock to all movie buffs. Though the director made small cameo roles in Chiranjeevi’s Tagore and Khaidi No 150 and Puri Jagannadh’s Neninthe, this will be the first time for the director to play a full-length role as a lead actor. N Narasimha Rao of Sarabha fame will be directing the film and star producer Dil Raju will be bankrolling this exciting project. The latest update is that Vinayak will be undergoing a drastic body transformation and will shed a few kilos of eight for his role. More details about this exciting project are yet to be revealed.
