2018 already looks like a year of the sons. Ambareesh’s son Abhishek will make his acting debut next year and another young actor, producer K Manju’s son Shreyas, too is planning his entry into the industry.
While Shreyas is making every effort to be ready for big screen, his father too is taking an equal interest in his son’s career. Manju has reportedly drawn out a list of directors, including Raghav Loki, who are readying scripts for Shreyas.  

City Express had earlier reported that Shreyas will make his debut with an Imran Sardhariya directorial. We now know that the actor’s second film is being readied by Raghav. This debutant director a student of Hamsalekha institution has worked as a writer and as an assistant director for a few films  Raghav won a state award for his screenplay for Krishna Leela.The film with Shreyas, which will mark his directorial debut, will go on floors from mid 2018 or just after the actor has completed his first film with Imran.

Raghav Loki’s film with Shreyas titled Karna

K Manju was a close friend of Vishnuvardhan, and considered as his guru, and therefore he has chosen Karna as the title for his son’s second movie. A 1986 film in the same name featured Vishnuvardhan and Sumalatha, and it was a remake of Hindi film Saheba, starring Anil Kapoor and Amruta Singh. Our source says, “The movie won’t be a period drama, as expected from the title, but will deal with a good subject and the actor and director need time to prepare for it. Manju is taking a lot of interest in the script, making sure that all the bits fall into place. These are the reasons why the movie’s making has been pushed.”
