Sukumar has been the director everyone talking about after the release of Rangasthalam. He is said to be a genius in every aspect.
But then, Nag Ashwin came up with Mahanati in the gap of a month and many are praising him now.
Normally, egoistic directors as professional jealousy is highly common wouldn’t really appreciate another director wholeheartedly. But Sukumar is different, he showed his down-to-earth attitude with a letter of Appreciation to Nag Ashwin. He wrote,
“I was trying to call you Nag Ashwin after watching the movie.
I was unable to connect to your number. An old lady came close to me and asked, “If I was the director?” I thought she is asking if I’m a director and said, Yes.
She immediately thanked me for showing her Savitri very beautifully on screen.
I couldn’t hold my tears.
I enjoyed for a moment being you, she mistook me for you but gave me ultimate pleasure of being you, Mahanati director for few minutes.
This is how much I loved the film. I can’t say much more than this.
-Sukumar (Nag Ashwin for few minutes)
I hope she never finds, I am not you!”
