Seems like, stars are not smiling on Sukumar. Anyone would have expected top stars to readily do a film with Sukumar after delivering a blockbuster like Rangasthalam with Ram Charan. The way Sukumar got the best out of Ram Charan and showed his acting prowess itself is a testimony of his talent.
However, till now none of the stars finalized his story. He first narrated a couple of stories to Super Star Mahesh Babu and waited long for his green signal. But with Mahesh Babu not showing interest in the red sanders story and also in a period story in which he would be shown as a fighter against the Razakars under Nizam rule, Sukumar went to Stylish Star Allu Arjun.
Allu Arjun gave a green signal and even formally announced the project. When many got excited with Bunny daring to star in red sanders story and speculation increased whether he would be seen in negative shades, another shocker is coming out.
It is known that Allu Arjun is currently starring in Ala Vaikunthapuram Lo, a family drama under the direction of Trivikram Srinivas and his next is Icon, a drama thriller with Venu Sriram.
Inside talk is Allu Arjun felt doing red sanders story with Sukumar would result in monotony and asked him to pen a romantic story for him. Sukumar is now said to be penning a feel-good romantic entertainer for Allu Arjun.
Sukumar is specialist in dealing romantic subject. But, in case of Bunny’s film, he needs to include all the commercial ingredients. Bunny gave couple of months time to Sukumar who needs to complete script works until then.
