It looks like, things are not going the way Sukumar wanted. After scoring a super successful film Rangasthalam he has waited for more than year and a half to confirm his next movie. After traveling with Super Star Mahesh Babu for more than 6 months, finally, due to creative differences, the project got shelved. However, within a few days, he confirmed his next movie with Allu Arjun with which he worked for Arya and Arya 2. It is said that Bunny gave his nod for the project which Mahesh Babu rejected. Though Allu Arjun has given his nod, he asked for changes in the script. It took more than the expected time for Sukumar to make the right changes. In the meantime, rumours started to surface stating that Allu Arjun and Sukumar project got shelved as well. Mythri Movie Makers production house for this project has decided to launch the movie first to put a full stop to all the rumours.
Finally, the project got launched. For the shooting to get started, Allu Arjun first has to complete his ongoing project in the direction of Trivikram Srinivas. The shooting of this flick will be completed by December first week. So, Sukumar has decided to start shooting this project which deals with the smuggling aspect in Chittoor district, Nallamala forest backdrop. But the twist comes in the form of Allu Arjun. Bunny stated that he want to take break from shooting and even needs to promote Ala Vaikunthapuramulo after the completion of shooting. As this movie is competing with Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru, Allu Arjun has decided to give more time to promotions. That’s why he asked Sukumar to wait till the release of Ala Vaikunthapuramulo to start shooting. With this, it is evident that Sukumar Allu Arjun’s film will not go on sets until January third week.
