Featured & Cover Celebrating 20 Years of Director Sukumar's Journey in the Film Industry

It’s been two decades since director Sukumar marked his entry into the film fraternity, making his debut on May 7, 2004, with the film “Arya.” Over the years, Sukumar has crafted a path of success with notable films like “100% Love” and “Pushpa: The Rise.” Reflecting on the journey and success of his debut film, “Arya,” Allu Arjun, who starred in the lead role, took to X (formerly Twitter) to share nostalgic moments.

In a heartfelt post, Allu unveiled a new poster commemorating the 20th anniversary of “Arya,” emphasizing that the film was more than just a cinematic creation; it was a transformative moment that altered the course of his life. Expressing perpetual gratitude, he shared throwback pictures featuring co-stars Anuradha Mehta, Siva Balaji, and a youthful Sukumar. Accompanying the images was the caption “Sweet Memories” accompanied by a heart emoji. Among the captured moments was a snapshot of the actor-director duo engaged in discussion with crew members, reminiscing about the making of the film. The bond between them endured over the years, leading to their collaboration once again in the 2022 blockbuster “Pushpa: The Rise.”

“Arya,” featuring Allu, Anuradha, and Siva in pivotal roles, narrates the tale of unrequited love, portraying the plight of a lovelorn protagonist enamored with a girl who reciprocates affection for another. The film’s narrative resonated with audiences, prompting a Tamil remake titled “Kutty” in 2010, starring Dhanush, Sriya Saran, and Dhyan. Additionally, “Arya 2” emerged as a spiritual successor to its predecessor, with Allu portraying a fresh character alongside Kajal Aggarwal and Navdeep.

Looking ahead, Sukumar’s directorial venture “Pushpa 2: The Rule” is highly anticipated, with Allu, Rashmika, and Fahadh reprising their roles as Pushpa Raj, Srivalli, and Bhanwar Singh Shekawat, respectively. Joining them in the cast are Jagapathi Babu, Brahmaji, Anasuya Bharadwaj, and others. Serving as a sequel to the 2021 hit “Pushpa: The Rise,” the film is slated for release on August 15th of this year.
