Starting with Arya, director Sukumar gave us 8 brilliant films. He turned producer with ‘Kumari 21F’ and gave did script work for it too. Though the film was in deep controversies and got a mixed response about taking such bold concept, Sukumar ended up making some good money. Of course Surya Pratap did direction; but it is still called as Sukumar’s film.

Anyway, moving on Sukumar wants to do more production and more writings as well. So, briefly his enterprise Sukumar Writings will be fully gamed. Adding to it, Sukumar has started another production house on his father’s name, ‘BTR Productions’. He said his brother will take care of the venture and it will be working closely with Sukumar Writings.

The next film he is gonna bank roll will be ‘Director’. Another assistant of Sukumar, Hari Prasad Jakka is making his debut as director and introducing Ashok as male lead in the film. Bandipotu fame Esha and a new comer Poojitha will be sharing screen as female leads. Unlike the first film, Hari Prasad wrote down the story and script by himself.

Coming to the point, apart from the projects that he is funding for, he didn’t slate down any films for direction. He is been saying he wants to spend more time on writing than on sets to his close circles. So, if that is true, Sukumar is leaving his count at ‘8’ and starting a new list as producer.
