Puri Jagannath is no more the director affordable for star heroes with mass image. He is on the mission to prove that he can handle heroines and small heroes without star image equally better. Best example is the heroine centric ‘Jyothi Lakshmi’ on sets currently and as per film sources, Puri in parallel is preparing a script for Red Star R Narayana Murthy. This means, Puri is here to tap those untapped talents in those artists who have a peculiar image in market.
On the other side, Puri is also having discussions with Mahesh Babu and Varun Tej to direct their next. Dealing parallel projects cannot be encouraged but the approach of Puri sounds new and innovative. However, Puri’s love for Narayana Murthy was seen in many of his past films like ‘Desa Muduru’ or ‘Cameraman Gangatho Ram Babu’ etc.
