It looks like this is a season of Tamil filmmakers vigorously foraying into Telugu film industry. Although, there have been many Kollywood moviemakers directing Telugu movies, this particular year seems to be special as more auteurs have bagged big offers.
First it was Gautham Vasudev Menon, who made Ye Maaya Chesave, the Telugu version of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. Now, he is making yet another Telugu film with Leader fame Rana Daggubati and Samantha in the leads. Then, SJ Suryah opted Telugu for recently released flick Komaram Puli, which stars Pawan Kalyan in the lead.
Vishnuvardhan will be the next one to make his way into Telugu film industry as he has been signed to direct a Telugu movie. Although, nothing has been revealed about the project, it looks like Allu Arjun will be playing the lead role in this movie.
Earlier, Vishnuvardhan had plans about making a period film in Tamil and has also approached Ajith Kumar for Billa-2.
