A star becoming a stunt director in T-town is not something that is seen everyday. However, Gen X star, Vishnu Manchu has become a qualified stunt director and is now choreographing stunt sequences on his own. He had enrolled himself with the stunts union of the Andhra Pradesh Film Employees Federation in 2004.
“He was a martial arts exponent and used to do a lot of action sequences in his films and even composed some stunts on his own. Now, he is eligible to become a professional stunt director and also claim the title for his work, since he has completed five years as a stuntman and the AP Stunt Union has given his stunt capabilities the nod.
Is Vishnu working out to get a six-pack, like Allu Arjun and Prabhas? “Not for six-pack but I have hired a trainer with whom I am working to get a toned body and I am following a workout regimen with strict diet restrictions for a lean physique for the climax action scene of my film,”says Vishnu Manchu.
