Seems like Sanchari Vijay is on a movie marathon. The national-award winning actor, currently in a mood to experiment, is taking every opportunity to do varied roles and to be part of different genres.Sanchari, who has around four films ready for release and four others in post production, is now set to juggle between two Kannada films and his Malayalam debut Theatre.

This film marks the directorial debut of journalist-turned-director Naveen Krishna. Chakravarthy Chandrachud who has written the screenplay, dialogues and lyrics of Meloba Mayavi will also play a mildly villainous character.

The poster shared with City Express shows the first look of the actor, who is made up to look mentally ill. He is seen tied up with Chandrachud taking a selfie.While it is said to be a series of real-life episodes, which took place in Mangaluru, the photographs and tagline ‘War Self v/s Selfie’ reminds us of a controversial incident in Kerala.
