This is the stepping stone for my dream of presenting a Prasanth Varma Cinematic Universe. The universe will have a six different super-heroes inspired by our history.”

“PVCU will big standalone project that will only be concentrating on superheroes inspired from our itihasas and the first one is HanuMan. The movie is all about an ordinary boy who gets superpowers like lord Hanuman to fight against the evils of society,” said the Zombi Reddy maker.
