Until last year, senior director Mani Sharma was doing small budget films with no big films in hand. But the success of iSmart Shankar made him bounce back in his career. Now, Mani Sharma is one of the busiest composers in the industry by having multiple big projects in hand.
After iSmart Shankar, Ram has roped in Mani Sharma for his next film Red as well. This movie is all set to hit the screens on April 9. Mani is reuniting with Megastar Chiranjeevi after a gap of 14 years with the film Acharya. Directed by Koratala Siva, this film will hit the screens in August this year. Mani is also the composer of Venkatesh's upcoming movie Narappa. This film is an official remake of Tamil hit Asuran and it is being directed by Srikanth Addala.
The 'Melody Brahma' is also working for director VV Vinayak's acting debut movie Seenayyya. With the success of iSmart Shankar's music album, director Puri Jagannath has decided to rope in Mani Sharma for his next directorial Fighter. Vijay Deverakonda is playing the lead in this pan-Indian film. Now, Mani has also signed Sai Dharam Tej's upcoming film which is being directed by Deva Katta. Featuring Nivetha Pethuraj as the female lead, this film got launched the other day. With more than half a dozen big films in hand, Mani is definitely back with a bang.
Mani Sharma's son Mahati Swara Sagar is equally busy and is helping out his father with a lot of projects.
