One of the most surprising announcements in the Telugu OTT space came last week when popular filmmaker Maruthi announced his collaboration with Ek Mini Katha-fame actor Santhosh Shobhan for a web film that's to be shot in a single schedule. The shoot had even commenced at Aluminium Factory, Hyderabad a few days ago. Santosh Shobhan has been paired alongside actress Mehreen in the project that has been titled Manchi Rojulu Vacchayi.
Maruthi isn't exactly new to the OTT space, having written and supervised a rib-tickling show titled Bhajana Batch for SonyLIV that released in 2019. However, Manchi Rojulu Vacchayi is the first time he'll be directing a web project entirely. The director had penned this script during the lockdown and hopes to wrap the show before he moves onto another film (aimed for theatres) with actor Gopichand titled Pakka Commercial. Reportedly Pakka Commercial will be a remake of Jolly LLB 2.
Santhosh Shobhan's career has been on the upswing ever since Ek Mini Katha earned rave reviews. Several reports doing the rounds even suggest that the young actor may team up with director Nandini Reddy for another web film soon. Besides these projects, Santhosh Shobhan is also waiting for the release of a film titled Prem Kumar. OTTs have the potential to create unlikely stars and this is one such example.
