Chennai, Aug 2 (IANS) 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 is about a love story that blossoms on a film set.
“The story is not based on my life. Agreed, 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,” Sukumar told IANS.
The film introduces Hari Prasad as a director.
“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 said.
Talking about Hari, he said: “I’m sure audiences will see a reflection my style in his 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.”
Sukumar is currently busy wrapping up Ram Charan starrer Telugu rural drama “Rangasthalam 1985”.
The film marks his maiden collaboration with Ram Charan, who will be seen in a complete rural avatar for the first time in his career.
