The budget of Vikram and Amy Jackson starrer 'Manoharudu' which is being directed by Shankar has even surpassed Rajinikanth's 'Robo'.
"I want to make a movie which requires more budget than 'Robo'. Will you be producing it?," Shankar asked Producer Oscar Ravichandran. Even though he don't have such a huge amount of money to produce a film with record budget, Mr. Ravichandran taken up the risk believing in the potential of Shankar and that's the reason he didn't even hear the script of 'Manoharudu'.
'Manoharudu' has gone on floors in July 2012 and it took 2 years & 8 months to wrap up the shooting. Right now, Post-Production work is in full swing and the release will be on October 22nd as Diwali special.
Makers were planning to release 'Manoharudu' in 25 languages including Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, China and Thaiwan. The Worldwide screen count of this biggie is 20,000. Could you believe a Indian film is releasing in 15,000 theatres in China alone. 'Manoharudu' is gonna achieve it!
