Telugu director VV Vinayak will be making his debut as an actor in the upcoming untitled suspense thriller. The 44-year-old director will be essaying a full-length role in the movie which is being produced by Dil Raju under the banner Sri Venkateshwara Creations. Narasimha Rao who directed Telugu socio-fantasy Sharabha, will be directing the movie.
Narasimha Rao has previously worked under renowned director Shankar. After Ram Charan-starrer Naayak in 2013, VV Vinayak failed to make much impact at the box office, although he did work with actors Chiranjeevi (Khaidi N0.150), Akhil and Sai Dharam Tej. Recently, news has been doing the rounds that the Telugu remake of Tamil superhit Vikram Vedha was on the cards. However, VV Vinayak is learnt to have dropped the idea of remaking the film, as the story lacked Telugu nativity and may not suit the tastes of Telugu audiences.
