In this context, one of the leading writers in the industry, Kona Venkat says that this trend is nothing new. It is a natural progression for a writer to aspire to become a director. He stated that story writing is a primary skill in cinema. It is a writer’s idea that eventually translates into a movie. Since a lot of times, the idea gets lost in translation, the writer himself takes to directing.

Writer Koratala Siva who made a blockbuster of his debut film, concurs and says that a writer pens the script with conviction and can execute the project better because he/she understands the flow of the screenplay.
