Director Sukumar has made big money from ‘Uppena’ for ‘presenting’ the film and providing writing ‘support’ to the director Buchi Babu, who also happens to be his disciple. Sukumar has not invested money in the film. Still, he took home a fat check from the profits.
Mythri Movie Makers, the production house, behind ‘Uppena’ also saw staggering profits from the film. Now, Buchi Babu, the director of Uppena, has got approval from NTR. Buchi Babu will direct NTR’s 31st film. It is likely to hit the floors after NTR wraps up Koratal Siva’s movie.
Sukumar will continue to provide similar support for this NTR’s 31st film as well. However, this time Sukumar is seeking a bigger pie from this project. Buzz is that Mythri Movie Makers has agreed to give more stake in the profits from the film.
The film is going to be a sports drama with some interesting mass elements. Buchi Babu is currently penning the script.
