There may not be a single Telugu-speaking household in the Telugu states that's not aware of the small-screen star, host Suma. While she dabbled with cinema, television soaps and anchoring in her early years, Suma remained content and stuck to her strengths as a television host. She reinvented herself with time, an aspect that has helped her reap rich dividends. While she continues to wow audiences on the small screen and her YouTube channel (Suma), it looks like the film bug has bitten her again. 

In an interview with The Hindu, Suma has shared that she would be making a comeback with a full-fledged role in Telugu film soon. The film has already gone on floors and the story is set amidst a village backdrop. More details about the film will be out shortly, she added. Suma earlier stated that she would be making a major announcement in August and it's very likely that she's referring to her film back. The cast, crew and other details may be out in public with this announcement. 

Suma in July had also launched her new digital channel named after her, in the presence of the actor, producer Vijay Deverakonda, with whom she had shot a quirky launch video. Ever since Suma has shared several videos on the channel where she's at her witty best while interacting with a bunch of kids aged between 4 and 8 years. She added that the digital medium has given her freedom to experiment with content, unlike the TRP-driven television industry. A few months ago, Suma's son Roshan Kanakala too announced his first project as a director.
