Darshakudu not based on my life: Sukumar
The filmmaker is presently busy wrapping up Rangasthalam 1985 starring Ram Charan in the lead
Filmmaker Sukumar has clarified that the story of his forthcoming Telugu production venture Darshakudu, slated to hit the screens on Friday, is not based on his life. The film, which introduces Hari Prasad as a director, is about a love story that blossoms on a film set.
"It's not based on my life. Yes, mine is a love marriage, but I didn't fall in love with my wife on any film set and nor is she a film person," says Sukumar
Talking about his director, he says, "Hari has been associated with me since the beginning of my journey. When I came across this story, I asked him to direct it as I felt it was time for him to venture out on his own. I'm really happy for him and wish this project opens more avenues for him." He also adds that audiences will see a reflection his style in Hari's work. "I won't mind if they do because he's been with me long enough and it's quite natural to be influenced by my style," he says.
Sukumar is currently busy wrapping up the Ram Charan starrer Rangasthalam 1985. The Telugu rural drama marks his maiden collaboration with the actor, who will be seen in a complete rural avatar for the first time in his career. Samantha Ruth Prabhu plays the leading lady in the film.
