If all goes well, hero Vishnu Manchu would be the New MAA (Movie Artistes' Association) President. With incumbent Murali Mohan's term coming to an end, the huge buzz going on in the Telugu film industry is that to handover the reigns of MAA to young blood. According to industry insiders, Vishnu Manchu's name is being strongly proposed for MAA president unanimously. Since Vishnu has been vocal and active in conducting events of MAA for a while, Vishnu Manchu's name propped up.
Although actor Rajendra Prasad evinced interest and stated that he'd like to contest, the ground reality is that Rajendra Prasad has no "takers", inform industry insiders. "It is norm to make MAA president election unanimous evading a conflict. This time too, we're contemplating to have unanimous choice. Many are strongly vouching Vishnu Manchu's name and we're awaiting his nod," said an industry insider on condition of anonymity.
But the moot question is whether Vishnu is ready to wield the responsibility or will he come out in open and support Rajendra Prasad. Let's wait and see. At the moment, Vishnu's name coming to fore definitely spiced up MAA President elections.
