Vishnu's death-defying stunt for 'Doosukeltha'
Actor Vishnu Manchu pulled off a daredevil stunt 80 feet off the ground here recently for his upcoming Telugu action-comedy "Doosukeltha", leaving everybody on the sets in awe.
"In a fight sequence choreographed by Thai stuntman Kecha, Vishnu jumped off a speeding jeep which rocketed over 80 feet off the ground. The whole unit held its breath as Vishnu jumped off the jeep onto the lead villains, finishing the shot successfully in the first take," said a statement.
"Stuntman Kecha praised the actor for doing the stunt without a body double," the statement added.
Kecha says Vishnu gave him a lot of freedom to experiment with stunts.

"Vishnu gave me freedom to design action sequences (as per) what is best for the film. I could just pull Vishnu aside if I had a new idea and he was ready to experiment. He pulls off the action sequence effortlessly," Kecha said in the statement.
Vishnu is currently shooting the climax scene for "Doosukeltha", directed by Veeru Potla with Lavanya Tripathi as the lead actress.
