Seasoned writer Vijayendraprasad who is basking in the glory of ‘Bahubali’ success, has now penned and directed a small film ‘Srivalli’. “First time, I have penned a thriller and it was an interesting journey. It was inspired by a real-life story and I hope it strikes a chord with viewers,’ says the ace writer, who is returning to direction after a long gap. “I was busy penning scripts, so direction took a back seat.
I am glad to return to direction with a refreshing idea,” he points out. Even though, the noted writer rocked box office as writer with superhit films like ‘Yamadonga’, ‘Magadheera’ and ‘Eega’ but couldn’t repeat similar magic as a director, despite his directorial debut in ‘Ardhangi, way back in 90s. Will ‘Srivalli’ break his jinx as director or not, only time will tell.
