Maruthi is one of the talented directors of Telugu cinema but somehow he couldn't sneak into the list of top league directors. Though he delivered decent hits and has close proximity to mega family heroes, he could not direct star heroes from the mega family. He might have got a chance had he delivered a hit with 'Babu Bangaram' but the chance given by Venkatesh has gone wasted.
Maruthi is presently working on 'Sailaja Reddy Alludu' starring Akkineni Naga Chaitanya. The shoot of the movie is nearing completion and Maruthi reportedly lined up a mega hero for his next film. Maruthi reportedly impressed Sai Dharam Tej with his story and Geetha Arts banner got ready to bankroll the project.
It is known that Maruthi has already directed a mega hero Allu Sirish in 'Kotha Janta'. Though he has been seriously trying to director mega family star heroes Allu Arjun and Ram Charan he couldn't impress them with his stories. If he scores hits with Chaitu and Teju, he may get a call from the top league heroes.
