The upcoming Pan-Indian Superhero film ‘Hanu-Man,’ directed by Prasanth Varma and starring Teja Sajja and Amritha Aiyer, is the latest talking point in the Indian film industry. While the film’s newly released teaser has been well welcomed by audiences, the VFX in comparison to its small budget has gotten a lot of attention.
The film ‘Hanu-Man’ is set to be released in Telugu in December 2022, along with dubbed versions in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi. Meanwhile, it has been reported that Zee Network has purchased the non-theatrical rights to the film’s Hindi and Telugu versions for a whopping Rs. 16 crores.
Produced by Niranjan Reddy under the PrimeShow Entertainment label, this is yet another film from the South Indian film industry, specifically Telugu cinema. Set in the imaginary universe of Anjanadri, ‘Hanu-man’ is a part of the Prasanth Varma Cinematic Universe.
In terms of the film’s title, the story is inspired by the Hindu God Hanuman. Lord Hanuman is one of the most talked-about figures for a potential new superhero franchise because he is a significant and well-known mythical character with superpowers.

Following the great success of films such as Baahubali, RRR, and Pushpa: The Rise, the Telugu film industry has proven to the world that it has the necessary resources, stories, and acting skills to produce films with worldwide appeal rather than merely Pan-India interest.
‘Hanu-Man,’ billed as Telugu cinema’s first superhero film, is written and directed by Prasanth Varma, well known for directing films such as Awe (2018) and Zombie Reddy (2021).
