Creative director Sukumar who tried venturing into other zoners of the film industry and turned successful in comparatively less time. His production house Sukumar Writings through which the ‘1-Nennnokidine’ director penned down some beautiful love stories is now all pumped up for the release of his recent venture ‘Uppena’. Starring Sai Dharam Tej’s brother Vaishnav Tej, the much-hyped film was actually set to hit the screens on April.
However, the Coronavirus lockdown has come as an unexpected jolt to the team. If the latest buzz at the rumour mills is to be believed, OTT giant Amazon is baiting for the film rights from Sukumar Writings and Mythri Movie Makers. It was learnt that the director has however bluntly rejected the movie which came as good news for distributors and theatre owners.
The producers and director Buchi Babu was said to wait until the lockdown gets lifted and go for theatrical release. Tollywood started applauding this move in the wake of many Bollywood and South Indian films taking OTT route.
