There are not many women directors in India let alone being in the top league. But Sudha Kongara defied all the odds and turned into one of the most happening directors in the South right now. She worked as an assistant director for Mani Ratnam before and made a strong impact with her debut film 'Sala Khadoos' which was made as 'Guru' in Telugu.
Despite delivering a solid film in her debut there were still doubts on her abilities. She destroyed everything doubt over her with her recent outing 'Aakasam Nee Haddu Ra'. She handled a star like Suriya in a superb way and stayed true to the film's story without deviating much. She became one of the most sought-after directors in the South at the moment and she was offered chances by the star heroes of Telugu as well as Tamil.
News is that two noted producers are also trying to lock her with advances but she is not getting carried away. Sudha will be working with a Tamil star on a pan-Indian project that was accepted way before the release of Suriya's film. She will be focusing all her energies on this film and accept other offers after that.
