Sukumar earned the name as a creative director in the Telugu film industry. He is currently busy working with Mahesh Babu for the film 1-Nenokkadine, which is scheduled for a Sankranthi release. In the meantime, he is getting busy as a producer and is in a mood to launch his assistants through his movies.
For his first production Sukumar zeroed in on Sumanth Ashwin as the lead hero. There is talk that he has also found the hero for his second movie. His name is Vikram (not the Tamil hero), who worked as an assistant under Sukumar. The Director of this movie will be announced in a few days.
Overall, Sukumar is making headway both in direction and production departments. Good luck Mr. Sukumar.
