Star director Sukumar who got his first success as a producer with ‘Kumari 21F’ is coming up with another production venture ‘Darshakudu’. It is getting released on August 4th. On the occasion, we caught him up for an interview and let us see what he had to say about his film.
Are you satisfied with the output of ‘Darshakudu’?
I am super happy about the film’s output and the audience will like this film for sure.
Can we find your mark in this flick?
Not at all. This is completely without my mark and that is why I loved it and came forward to produce it.
Hero Ashok said that he followed your style while doing the role of a director. Do you agree?
Frankly, I was the only director whom Ashok observed closely. So, may be he would have got inspired from me.
After a lot of thinking you zeroed it on Ashok. Why?
I am a movie maniac since my childhood. So, I came into films and became a director. But, I wanted Ashok to become well educated. That is why I was hesitant at the beginning but Hari Prasad convinced me.
What is the reason behind choosing a new hero?
It was Hari Prasad’s decision to opt for a newcomer and I couldn’t say no looking at his clarity.
Can we see you directing Ashok in future?
Time tells us about his future in the film industry. This film is very crucial for him and I dint guarantee him anything yet.
There is a dialogue in the trailer which says direction is 20% creativity and 80% management. What do you have to say about it?
During the pre-production stage, everything is in our hands. But, it goes haywire on sets. So, the director should also be able to manage things. But for me, direction is 80% effort and 20% creativity.
