Call it an act of gratitude or an attempt to show special appreciation, producer BVSN Prasad has gifted a luxury car to director Sukumar as the duo's last outing Nannaku Prematho turned out to be good hit. Prasad has been contemplating to gift Sukumar ever since the film turned out to be success and finally purchased BMW X3 and gifted Sukumar recently.
Gifting director's with cars isn't new. Soon after the success of Bhale Bhale Magadivoy, producers Bunny Vas, Vamsi, have gifted expensive Jaguar car to director Maruthi. Producer Bandla Ganesh had gifted 44-lakh worth diamond lighter to director Puri Jagannadh in the past before the duo worked for Iddarammayilatho.
Star heroes too not any less in gifting their directors. Superstar Mahesh Babu has gifted Audi A6 to director Koratala Siva for delivering a blockbuster Srimanthudu. Jr NTR recently said to have gifted a 20-Lakh watch to director Koratala Siva before the shooting of Janatha Garage kicked off. NTR in the past too gifted watches to directors Harish Shankar, Sreenu Vaitla. Looks like, directors are being rewarded by the producers, stars who're leaving no opportunity unturned to impress them and trying to be in directors good books.
