It was completely Sukumar's mistake to let the project go off from his hands. Mahesh immediately okayed a project for Anil Ravipudi. Allu Arjun accepted to work with Sukumar but the film's script is not ready yet. Allu Arjun will be working in a film, directed by Trivikram Srinivas now and will immediately start working on Venu Sriram's film.
Sukumar needs six months time for finishing the script which means that he can only start his film next year and will release by the end of 2020. It is completely evident that Sukumar is not going to treat the audiences this year and he has to keep his fans waiting for almost two years for coming up with a new movie.
