Renowned creative genius and filmmaker Sukumar has consistently championed the cause of nurturing and promoting gifted artists and technicians within the industry. Serving as a guiding force, Sukumar has witnessed some of the directors who apprenticed under him in the direction department achieve extraordinary success with their maiden ventures. For others, Sukumar stands as their revered 'guru,' providing a profound learning experience through his cinematic masterpieces, effectively becoming their indirect mentors.

Among the rising talents emerging from Sukumar's mentorship is Director Yeshasvi V, who can be likened to an Eklavya-style disciple under Sukumar's influential tutelage. Noteworthy is Deepak Saroj, the former child artist turned protagonist, whose unique love story titled 'Siddharth Roy' is set to grace the silver screen shortly, with Yeshasvi at the helm as the director.

In a testament to Yeshasvi's directorial prowess showcased in 'Siddharth Roy,' Sukumar, the visionary creator behind acclaimed films like 'Pushpa' and 'Rangasthalam,' has not only taken notice but has gone a step further.
