Dashing director Puri Jagannadh is elated with the stupendous success of Ram, Nabha Natesh and Nidhi Agerwal starrer iSmart Shankar which already entered profit zone in few key areas. The mass action entertainer which is bankrolled by Puri himself along with Charmee is expected to end as double blockbuster.
Meanwhile, Puri Jagannadh and team is busy promoting the film. The star director recently made some controversial remarks on super star Mahesh Babu saying he likes Mahesh Babu fans more than the star. “Mahesh Babu will work with only directors in success form. Now, I’m not interested to direct Mahesh Babu,” said Puri.
Apparently, Puri who is a die-hard fan of Mega Star Chiranjeevi is willing to direct the matinee idol. In fact, he was the prime choice for Chiru’s 150th film. However, the film titled Auto Johnny was shelved since Chiru and Ram Charan who was supposed to produce the film did not like second half of the script.
Puri later expressed his anguish saying had he was asked he would have surely made changes to the script. The director has now made another interesting comment that, it requires just five days for him to write a story for Chiranjeevi.
“It’s a dream for me to direct Chiranjeevi. If I’m given an opportunity, I’ll ready the script in just five minutes,” said Puri who already announced to make sequel for iSmart Shankar with Ram titled Double iSmart.
On the flip side, Chiru is presently working for his dream project Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy under Surender Reddy’s direction. Chiru will next team up with Koratala Siva for a film to be bankrolled by Charan. The question is will Chiru consider Puri’s plea of giving a chance to direct him.
