Actor-Producer Vishnu Manchu, who became a father to a baby boy on Monday evening, has requested his well-wishers not to spread fake pictures of the new born infant.
Vishnu Manchu and his wife Viranica had a new addition in their family this week, as Viranica delivered a baby boy in Hyderabad. However, fake pictures of Vishnu Manchu’s newborn started doing the rounds on the internet.
The actor has appealed to everyone to respect the privacy of his family. He has requested all users on social media, not to spread fake baby pictures.
“What you see going viral is not real. I will soon share the picture of the baby with you all,” Vishnu said in a statement.
The family is over joyous, including his daughters Ariaana and Viviana, who are welcoming the newest addition in the family. The proud father is equally elated.
Vishnu has a line-up of films like Gayatri, Voter and Achari America Yatra getting ready for release early this year.
The first look of Vishnu alongside actress Shriya Sharan from Gayatri was unveiled on Monday. The poster suggested a soft beautiful romantic story, a statement from the makers said.
The director told reporters that Vishnu's role would steal the audience's heart.
Talking about his role, Vishnu said: "As an actor, this role is an acid test for me. It is a breakaway from the roles I have played over the years. (While) as a producer, this is among the coolest movies I have produced. Everything fell in place because of my father's presence on sets."
Apart from Gayatri, which is set for a worldwide release on February 9, Voter in Telugu is also being made as a bilingual political thriller and will be released as Kural388 in Tamil.
