Tollywood has many top writers who turned to directors. Not all of them have succeeded in terms of direction. Star writer Vakkantham Vamsi who worked in the Tollywood film industry for more than a decade, is one of them. Vamsi has earlier penned scripts for superhit films like Ashok, Kick, Yevadu, Race Gurram, Temper, etc. He later turned as a director with stylish star Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya, Naa Illu India.
The film, which featured Allu Arjun in the role of an army soldier, has bombed at the Box Office. Naa Peru Surya left the writer turned director Vakkantham Vamsi in a dilemma on his future projects. The film also gave a huge shock to Bunny, who took almost a year to commence his next. Now on a shocking note, Vakkantham Vamsi is once again trying his luck as a director. But this time the director chooses to helm a Kannada film. Reports are coming out that Vakkantham Vamsi is in talks with Sandalwood star Darshan for an upcoming film. If everything goes as planned, the film might commence soon. Let us wait and see if Sandalwood delivers the much-needed success to the director or not.
On the flip side, Allu Arjun has commenced his next film Ala Vaikuntapuramlo almost one year post the failure of Naa Peru Surya. The actor is trying to enter the success streak with this Trivikram’s directional. The film is slated for a grand release during the Sankranthi 2020. Pooja Hegde and Nivetha Pethuraj are the leading ladies in it.
