Debutant Sashikanth to direct Vishal Krishna in `Shukra`

Chennai: Debutant Telugu director Sashikanth is likely to direct Tamil actor Vishal Krishna in Telugu film ‘Shukra’.

"Vishal is likely to start working for the project from March after he finishes shooting for upcoming Tamil film `Madha Gaja Raja`," a source from the industry said.

"The dubbed versions of Vishal`s Tamil films such as `Sandakozhi` and `Thimiru` were a runaway hit in Andhra Pradesh and since then he wanted to do a straight Telugu film for quite some time now," the source added.

The other cast and crew of the film will be announced soon.

The 35-year-old has in his kitty another Tamil project titled ‘Pattathu Yaanai’ opposite Aishwarya Arjun.
