Writer-director Puri Jagannadh is one man who bats for what ever he believes in. And he stands by his people, who are stamped as Puri’s camp, like his “God Father” Ram Gopal Varma. And we’re not talking about his item girls anymore. Yes, it’s about one of Puri’s heroines in his last film Iddarammayilatho-Catherine Tresa.
The buzz had it that T-town starlet Catherine Tresa is in a state of jeopardy. After debuting with Varun Sandesh-starrer Chammak Challo, Catherine Tresa had garnered a role opposite Allu Arjun in Puri Jagannadh’s directorial Iddarammayilatho. While the both films bombed at box-office, she has another big-ticket film in her kitty-Nani’s Paisa-which hasn’t seen the light of the day and has been in making for a while. So, while T-town gossip mongers are busy marking Catherine as “Iron Leg” and tagging her as unlucky and jinxed, and no producer dared to rope in Catherine in their films, Puri Jagannadh stepped in to “save” Catherine. Puri, who is also producing his upcoming film Heart Attack with Nithin, has zeroed in on Catherine for the female lead opposite Nithin.
So, big question is will Puri gives break to Catherine or Catherine gives Heart Attack to Puri? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates.
