Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India director Vakkantham Vamsi is all set to make his directing debut with Allu Arjun’s film. Vakkantham is a renowned Telugu writer and has written popular films like Temper and Race Gurram and others.
In a detail interview with Firstpost, Vakkantham opened about his dream of debuting as a director. He said, “I wasn’t quite happy with my career as an actor as it wasn’t going anywhere. That’s when I had made up my mind that I should be part of the film industry come what may. Direction was always on my mind but I chose to begin my career as a writer and started exploring opportunities.”
He further said, “It was unfortunate and disappointing that the film with NTR didn’t materialise. It would’ve been my first film. He was certain that we’d only collaborate if both of us were 100 percent sure about a script. The idea I had in mind excited him but we had our difference of opinion. Hence, we decided to not take the project forward. It was a mutual decision and we didn’t end things on a bad note as speculated by a section of media.”
Vakkantham talking about his directorial debut Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India and his collaboration with Allu Arjun said, “Had it not been for his call after my proposed project with NTR didn’t take off, I may have waited longer to make my directorial debut. He called and heard few lines of my story and liked the idea of Naa Peru Surya. He asked if the character would fit Bunny (Allu Arjun).”
