During a recent media interaction, Nani, who is soon to release his upcoming film “Dasara”, made a statement that some have found controversial.
He noted that although Sukumar is known for his work in Pushpa series in one language, the film was dubbed in four languages where he is not as recognized as in Telugu.
In contrast, “Dasara” director Srikanth is not so recognized in five languages, highlighting the difference between the two.
Addressing the question of why Nani is trying to achieve pan-India success with a new director instead of an experienced one, he offered his answer, suggesting that Sukumar was only known in Telugu when he released Pushpa and was eventually recognized with the success of the film nationwide.
However, it is unfair to say that Sukumar’s success is limited to only Telugu speaking audience. He has a track record of successful films that have been dubbed in Hindi and have been seen in other languages such as Rangasthalam and Arya.
Sukumar’s name is also well known in multiple languages on platforms like YouTube and OTT.
It is important to recognize that Sukumar’s success extends beyond just the Telugu speaking audience. However, there have been discussions in the industry about Nani’s seemingly cocky attitude in his announcements.
While this may work in his favor, any missteps may result in negative feedback and criticism.
