Ram Charan Teja starrer Rangasthalam, released in March this year, was one of the biggest hits in the Telugu film industry. The film was directed by ace director Sukumar and produced by Y. Naveen, Y. Ravi Sankar and C. V. Mohan under the banner Mythri Movie Makers. The film was directed by Sukumar and showed Ram Charan in a new light.
Following its massive success, director Sukumar along with the production Mythri Movie Makers, has decided to bankroll a new venture that will give an opportunity to one of his assistants, Buchchi Babu to hold the megaphone. Sukumar Writings and Mythri Movie Makers will be producing the film jointly and it is currently in the pre-production mode. Details about the star cast and crew are expected to be out soon.
While this project is finalized, there is another one almost on the verge of being finalized. Reports are that Sukumarâ€™s yet another assistant Kasi, who was also associated with Rangasthalam, is ready with a script and the directorâ€™s close buddy is in talks to produce it.
The two other assistants, Srinivas and Venkat, also have interesting scripts ready and may soon find producers for their ventures; thanks to Sukumar. Sources in the know say that Sukumar will be closely monitoring the progress of all the four projects to ensure that his protĂ©gĂ©s turn to be successful in their first attempt. Well, it is indeed a kind gesture by the director!
Rangasthalam, it may be mentioned here, was made on a budget of Rs 60 crores and went on to gross Rs 210 crores at the box office. Starring Ram Charan Teja and Samantha as the lead pair, the film also had Anasuya Bharadwaj, Jagapati Babu, Aadhi Pinisetty, Prakash Raj and Amit Tiwari in the supporting roles. The film was distributed by Ram Charanâ€™s Konidela Production Company.
