Sukumar, who had directed Arya, took a long gap for his next film 'Jagadam". The film faced failure and again he took considerable gap for his next film 'Arya-2". However, that film faced the heat of the Telangana agitation and faced a rough weather. However, the film was proved commercially successful at last. Now that, Sukumar realised that he should not take any more gap between films and prepared different subjects for his forthcoming projects. He is planning to direct a romantic entertainer and the story was narrated to Naga Chaitanya and impressed him. Moreover, popular producer Allu Aravind had come forward to produce the film on the banner of Gita Arts.
Naga Chaitanya"s latest film 'Yem Maya Chesave" is getting ready for release on March 26. After this, he would play hero in another film under the direction of Ajay Bhuyan, with Kajal in the female lead. Probably, his film with Sukumar would be his fourth project.
