Director Puri Jagannadh has been churning out a lot of duds at the box office. He needs a solid comeback to cement his place in Tollywood. Along with heroine Charmme Kaur, Puri is producing a film called iSmart Shankar.
It has become a norm for directors to show their protagonist with some sort of physical disorder so that they can weave a story around it. Shankar started it off with split personality disorder in Aparichitudu. Soon, many directors followed suit.
Mahesh Babu played a schizophrenic in One-Nenokkadaine while Ram Charan played a hearing-impaired person in Rangasthalam. Now, director Puri Jagannadh is joining the bandwagon.
Sources reveal that Ram Pothineni, who plays the lead role in the film will play a guy who suffers from split personality disorder. However, an official confirmation is yet to come.
Actress Nidhhi Agerwal, who is enjoying the applause coming her way for her performance in Mr. Majnu, will play the female lead in the film.
