Shankar IPS, an action thriller by director M S Ramesh, defied odds to be declared a hit. Though the audience refused to accept Duniya Vijay in the role of an IPS officer, the movie bounced back in the third week.
Female leads Raagini Dwivedi and Catherine Tresa provided the glamour and skin show for front row audience for whom Duniya Vijay is a favourite. The movie has already crossed 25 days at several centres. It has also provided a much-deserved break for Ramesh, a protÃ©gÃ© of acclaimed director K V Raju.
Producer Gandugali K Manju badly needed a hit as some of his recent productions have flopped. Buoyed by the success of Shankar IPS, Manju announced three new projects.
