Puri Jagannadh is basking in the success of ‘iSmartShankar’ which is performing well at the box office. The film earned Rs 7.90 Cr on its opening day at the box office. The director was away from action over the last few years. He has come back with a bang with ‘iSmartShankar’. The film has received positive word of mouth which is growing stronger by the day and spreading like wildfire amongst movie buffs.
The latest buzz on social media is that all is not well between Puri Jagannadh and Mahesh Babu.
During ‘iSmartShankar’ promotions Puri Jagannadh quoted to online portals that Mahesh Babu will do movies only with successful directors and producers. He doens’t care about flop directors. I admire Mahesh Babu fans as they always ask me to do a project with Mahesh. But, they are not aware of the truth that Mahesh Babu prefers directors whose success graph is at its peak. Mahesh Babu who is not only a popular actor also enjoys a solid fan following across the globe. Some Mahesh fans are quite disappointed with Puri Jagannadh’s words.
In fact, Puri Jagannadh and Mahesh had delivered together two blockbuster hits in the past-Pokiri in 2006 and Businessman in 2012. We hope that they will sort their differences and join hands for another project again.
On the career front, Mahesh Babu is currently occupied with ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’, which will be releasing next year during Sankranti festival.
