Puri Jagannadh takes a veiled dig at Mahesh Babu
Filmmaker Puri Jagannadh breathed a sigh of relief as his recently-released film iSmart Shankar has registered a great opening at the box office. At this point, people are unearthing his old videos.
In a video, he is seen taking potshots at Mahesh Babu. He claims that Mahesh Babu’s fans like him more than the star does. The two have given hit films like Pokiri and Businessman.
He said, “Mahesh Babu’s fans frequently ask me to revive Jana Gana Mana project that I had planned with the superstar. I had tried to tell them but I couldn’t do so but I would say now that Mahesh Babu works with directors who are in successful form. Since I was giving flops, he refused to work with me.”
Puri also added that he’d not be okay with working with Mahesh Babu again. He said that he has a character and self-esteem and would not work with him hereafter.
