It appears director Puri Jagannadh is a little upset with Prince Mahesh Babu. Earlier the director had narrated the story of “Janaganamana” to the Prince who at that time had agreed to do the film. The director is now on a bad patch with his film “Ism” proving to be a big disaster at the box office. Mahesh has apparently given Puri the cold shoulder now.
Not to be cowed down by the turn in his fortune Puri went to Victory Venkatesh with some story and script which apparently Venky promptly agreed to do. Now it is learnt that this story is the same “Janaganamana” which the director had narrated to Mahesh earlier. What’s more??!! Venky is also producing the film himself.
Let’s hope this film brings about a change in the capable director’s fortunes.
