Director Sujeeth Hits The Jackpot

Director Sujeeth Hits The Jackpot

Lady luck must be sitting on young director Sujeeth's head. The young director is getting Rs 150 Cr budget for his second movie when he actually wanted mere Rs 50 Cr from the producers.

Generally, producers cut down the budget from the proposals made by the directors but here Sujeeth is getting three times more than he planned. 

He shot to fame with his debut film "Run Raja Run" that starred Sharwanand. Impressed with his work, UV Creations the banner that produced "Run Raj Run" gave him the chance to direct Prabhas for his second film.

When this movie was announced two years ago, when "Baahubali" was still progressing, Tollywood makers didn't believe it.

Many thought that he would be replaced by another director after the mammoth success of "Baahubali". But UV Creations and Prabhas both stuck to their promise and are going to launch the movie in December this year.

Sujeeth wrote this action adventure for Prabhas and he asked Rs 50 Cr as budget but the producers voluntarily hiked the budget to Rs 75 Cr first now they have given him Rs 150 cr and asking him to direct in all three languages in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.

So Sujeeth, who has made just one film with mere budget of Rs 10 Cr so far, is getting mammoth budget for his second film and he would also be exposed to Tamil and Hindi audiences too. This is called 'Nakka Toka Tokkadam' in Telugu.
