If you look at Jr NTR's all previous films, he did movies with directors who delivered box office hits. Post the hit of Dookudu, NTR said YES to Srinu Vaitla (Baadshah), later Junior said YES to Harish Shankar (Ramayya Vasthavayya) and lastly to Srinivas (tentatively titled ‘Rabhasa’) who scored hit with Kandireega. Also it was a confirmed news that Young Tiger will be doing his next project with Sukumar. But now Tarak is in quandary to go ahead with Sukumar as Nenokkadine's response and result was poor.
As Jr NTR is struggling to smash the box office, he is might opt out of the project said an insider. But what one needs to notice is, NTR did not score a big hit even though he teamed up with super hit directors in the past.
Tollywood circles opine that NTR should focus on script selections than HIT MANTRA and this would bring a better result for him.
Let's see whether Jr NTR will give hand or not to Sukumar.
