If you were asked to name that one director in Tollywood who redefined the genre of commercial masala potboilers and gave stardom to heroes, then your vote would go for crazy director Puri Jagannadh. Over the years, he has given a different characterization to the likes of Ravi Teja, Mahesh Babu and others.
Those who are close to Puri reveal that he has a sentiment of shooting at least one scene (of his film) in Bangkok. It is more like his second home. But of late, it looks like Puri has given a break to this sentiment and he is somehow preferring something nearby. Well, the noted filmmaker has been shooting for the film Temper in Goa since few weeks.
Now, it is heard that he has sent the unit of Temper back and has begun shooting for his other venture Jyothilakshmi starring the charming beauty Charmme. Reports reveal that this is going to be a one month start to finish schedule and by February 2015, Puri will be ready for Mahesh Babu’s film. That’s Puri Jagannadh for you!
