Mohanbabu's daughter, actor, producer and TV show host Lakshmi Manchu is now busy with her next venture. She is all set to act in 'Gundello Godari' that is a period film that dates back to 1986. Lakshmi roped in music maestro Ilayaraja as the music director for this film. Lakshmi will be seen as country girl in this flick. Lakshmi narrated the story to Ilayaraja who liked it immensely. He immediately agreed to compose music for this film.
Lakshmi along with her director are now camped in Munnar in Kerala with Ilayaraja to compose music for the film. Apparently musicians get good tunes if they are in nice places and exotic locations. Inorder to get better output from Ilayaraja, Lakshmi arranged a trip for Ilayaraja to Munnar.
"She along with her director and music director Ilayaraja will be there for about a week until good tunes are produced.This is a prestigious project for her since her first film 'Jhummandi Naadham' as a producer was a musical hit. In these music sittings, she is happy that great tunes have come up for the film." a source close to Lakshmi said.
Lakshmi is also producing 'Ukodathara Ulikki Padathara' with her younger brother Manoj as the hero and Deeksha Seth as the heroine. She managed to convince Nandamuri Balakrishna to act in this movie.
