Gone were the days when the assistant directors used to be assistant directors, waiting desperately for a break, a distant possibility. These days the trend has changed and budding directors fall in the right line, well with a little help from their directors!
The directors of this age have shifted gears by laying a career ahead for their associate directors, and one amongst them who has helped six of his associate directors is renowned Venkat Prabhu. A perfect example for an apt Guru, each one has crafted a path.
Director Sripathi gave away Kanimozhi a film with Jai in the lead. The movie was produced by Amma creations who also produced Saroja. Next off is Shakti who made the movie Naanayam, a thriller. The movie was received well by critics and it was produced by Capital film works that also produced Chennai 600028.
And then there is Ranjith who directed the romcom Attakathi which was distributed by Studio Green. The promotional activity and pre-release preview were organized by Venkat Prabhu for Studio green Gnavelraja. Also in the lines are Vadacurry by Saravanan another associate of VP. The movie will be produced by Cloud nine movies that also made Mankattha. Next up are Nalanum Nandhiniyum & Naveena Saraswati sabatham by Venkatesan and Chandru respectively.
