Director Puri Jagannath is always a surprise package. He makes films at rocket speed and won’t feel bad directing even struggling artists. When his career was in peaks, Puri launched his brother Sai Ram Shankar as hero with 143.
After making a critically acclaimed film like Temper this year, he stunned one and all by teaming up with Charmi for a heroine centric film Jyothy Lakshmi.
One rare and atypical quality of Puri is he doesn’t wait for heroes. When star heroes are busy with other commitments, he picks young actors. Likewise, Puri who is currently working with mega hero Varun Tej for tentatively titled film Maa Amma Mahalakshmi, is introducing new guy Ishan with his next film Rogue.
The director also announced to start the project from November. Although the young guy Ishan is looking handsome, it is in deed a strange decision from Puri who just missed to direct Megastar Chiranjeevi’s 150th film.
Before starting Temper, Puri narrated a story to Mahesh Babu who told him to come up with better script. Then he approached Chiranjeevi with Auto Johnny story which was also rejected owing to regular and not-so-compelling stuff in the second half. Now, he has made his mind to make his next with a newcomer. Puri, you are incredible!
