The enviable combination of Sreya and Gracy Singh are paired up apposite the charmer of Charminar 'Nagarjuna'. His next venture is going to be 'Manmadhudu' by Annapurna Studios. Annapurna Studios stopped producing films for a few years. Now they had roped in Vijaya Bhaskar, who has blockbusters like Nuvve Kavali and Nuvvu Naaku Nachav to reckon with. The dream technical team of Vijaya Bhaskar is working over finalizing script. Vijaya Bhaskar is in Mumbai now to supervise the post-production progress of Hindi version of 'Nuvve Kavali'.
