Chennai, Sep 30 IANS | 10 months ago

Filmmaker Sukumar Bandreddi has signed up actor Sumanth Ashwin for his upcoming, yet-to-be-titled maiden Telugu production venture to be directed by Verma Reddy.


Sumanth, who is basking in the success of Telugu romantic-drama "Anthaku Mundhu Aa Tharavatha" (AMAT), is soon expected to start shooting for the film.

"I liked Sumanth's performance in 'AMAT'. I thought he would be apt for the role in this film. Moreover, I'm keen to work with a young and energetic team, preferably newcomers. I'm busy working on '1: Nenokkadine', and as soon as I complete it, I shall resume this project," Bandreddi told IANS.

Bandreddi is currently busy wrapping up his Telugu directorial project "1: Nenokkadine", starring Mahesh Babu.

The filmmaker, who recently floated a production house, is keen to make films with his associates.

Meanwhile, Sumanth has signed for another untitled Telugu film with filmmaker Maruthi. The project is expected to kick start soon.
