Venky Kudumula who worked as an assistant director has made his directorial debut with Naga Shaurya's Chalo. The film did well at the box office and Venky got a chance to direct Nithiin. His second film Bheeshma also managed to fare well at the box office. Venky is yet to announce his next film, but the latest we hear is that he is going back to square one and assist star director Trivikram Srinivas for SSMB28. Wondering why Venky is going back to be AD? It is because, Trivikram's go-to man Satyam who assists him with creative inputs and visualizations has passed away, and Venky is now filling the void. It will also be a great opportunity for the young director to learn from Trivikram.
