There have been reports that noted writer K V Vijayendra Prasad has scripted a revenge drama and it will have the Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan playing the lead role.
However, the writer himself has denied it as baseless rumors. Stating that he has no plans to direct a film with SRK, the Baahubali writer wondered where such rumors surfaced from.
While the rumors started to make rounds as he is frequently visiting Mumbai, sources say that he is busy penning the script for the Kangna Ranaut starrer Manikarnika, which is a historical film based on the life of Rani of Jhansi Lakshmi Bai.
K V Vijayendra Prasad has penned several films in his long career. He made his debut with the Telugu movie Janaki Ramudu in 1988 and had penned Rana, Simhadri, Eega, Magadheera, Mitrudu, Yamadonga, Vikramarkudu etc.
In Tamil, he wrote the Vijay starrer Mersal, which was a big hit and he is currently busy with another Vijay starrer, which is being helmed by AR Murugadoss.
Though he is a well known and successful writer, KV Vijayendra Prasad is yet to taste success as a director. He has directed four movies - SriValli (2017), Rajanna (2011), Sri Krishna (2006) and Arthanghi (1996) – in his career and unfortunately, all of them failed to yield the desired results at the box office.
The 75-year-old writer has won several prestigious awards in his career including the Nandi Award for Best Feature Film for Rajanna, Filmfare Awards 2016 - Best Story for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sony Guild Awards 2016 for Best Story for Bajrangi Bhaijaan and the Iconic Trade Achiever of the Year in 2015 from the Indywood Film Market.
