Taking out the list of those filmmakers who created a new trend with their movies in the Telugu film Industry, the name of speed director Puri Jagannadh stands in the top five. His movies have always been different and nobody can forget ‘Pokiri’. That aside, it appears Puri has lost his sheen in the recent times.
The biggest jolt to him was his last venture ‘Mehbooba’ which marked the debut of his son Akash Puri as a hero. Now, it is heard that Puri is embarking on a new project which has been titled as ‘Vasco Da Gama’ and there is an element of suspense going on. Apparently, Puri had announced he would take three back to back films with Akash.
But now there are reports that he is eyeing a popular young hero for his project and he would give Akash’s project to be handled by one of his assistants. So, it is not sure who is going to be the Vasco Da Gama for Puri. The title certainly is catchy and would require someone more branded and established. The coming days will give further clarity.
