Chiru's Auto Jaani = Balayya's Paisa Vasool?

One interesting gossip doing rounds in Tollywood's Film Nagar is that megastar Chiranjeevi's better sense prevailed when Puri narrated the script of 'Auto Jaani', or that he would have got a flop like Balayya did with 'Paisa Vasool'.

Those who followed the developments of “Auto Jaani” say the story of “Paisa Vasool” is the same line that Puri had narrated to megastar Chiranjeevi.

In the second half of “Paisa Vasool”, Balakrishna appears as a driver. In the original narration given to Chiranjeevi, the hero is an auto driver who transports parcels.

Although Chiranjeevi liked the first half of the movie, he was unsure about the post-interval sequences as they were more like “Pokiri”. Megastar politely turned down the story.

Puri Jagannadh came up with this “Auto Jaani” script for Chiranjeevi’s 150th film. Not satisfied with Puri’s line, he went ahead with the plan of remaking Tamil hit “Katthi” into Telugu as “Khaidi No 150” that turned out to be a massive all-time third biggest grosser.

Chiranjeevi’s sense of judgement saved him from a disaster.
