There are a few director and actor combinations in the Telugu film industry which are often celebrated by the audience. One such combination is Puri Jagannath and Mahesh Babu. The duo first teamed up for 2006 gangster drama Pokiri. Released with no expectations, this film became a stupendous success at the box office. It was an industry hit during those times. They teamed up for the second time for the 2012 film Business Man, which also became a super-hit at the box office. Now, we hear that the duo is all set to reunite for the third time.
A few years back, Puri Jagannath announced a movie called Jana Gana Mana with Mahesh. Even Mahesh has confirmed the same. But due to some unknown reasons, that project never took off. After that, even Puri and Mahesh have never seen together at any event. Recently, Puri said that he still wishes to make a film with Mahesh but the actor is not taking any call. Apparently, the Athadu actor has finally taken his decision. The duo will reunite once again for a new film. This movie will go on floors next year. In the meantime, Puri will complete his ongoing project with Vijay Deverakonda. On the flip side, Mahesh will finish off his next project which is being directed by Parasuram.
Both of them are in prime-time of their careers now. They scored super-hits with their respective last films. Thus, this reunion is now building hype among the audiences. More details on the project will get revealed soon.
