Hyderabad. January 29: Tollywood Hero Manchu Vishnu's last film 'Eedo Rakam Aado Rakam' got the positive response from the audience. And now he is back with 'Luckunnodu' movie, which was released worldwide on 26 Jan on the eve of Republic Day.
The movie running with a good talk, since both Vishnu and Hansika are acted in two successful films together — 'Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda' and 'Denikaina Ready', the lead pair Vishnu Manchu and Hansika teamed up for the third time for 'Luckunnodu', produced by MVV Satyanarayana under MVV Cinema Banner.
So, the expectations were naturally high. Looks like the lead pair is pretty pleased with the audience response to the film.
"I've been hearing really good things about the film. This has to be our third hit together," declares Hansika right at the outset even as Vishnu nods in agreement.
Ask them what is the secret behind their success, and Hansika butts in saying, "We are like Tom and Jerry on the sets." To which Vishnu says, "Oh, we are always pulling pranks at each other. But she's extremely sportive and a lot of fun to work with. There's always a positive vibe to be working with her."
Incidentally, her character in the film is very similar to her off-screen persona admits Hansika. "My character Positive Padmavati is a lot like me. As the name suggests, I'm the one who motivates Lucky (Vishnu) to not lose hope, although he believes that he has the worst luck in the world," she says.
So does that mean Hansika was the lucky mascot for the film? Before Hansika can answer Vishnu butts in saying, "Sure she's got me as her boyfriend!" Hansika scoffs and retorts, "Oh you wish!" "His kids call me maasi," she tells us.
The movie was directed by Raj Kiran while tunes were composed by Atchu and Praveen Lakkaraju.
