Probably, the biggest mistake that Puri Jagannath made in recent times was to direct a small movie like ‘Jyothi Lakshmi’ after ‘Temper’.
The movie was a complete washout at the box-office and whether small or big, a flop is a flop and in the industry, you are as good as your last film. His subsequent planned project with Chiranjeevi (Chiru’s 150th) ran into foul weather.
The mega star shelved the project ‘Auto Jaani’ as he did not like the second half of the script. This has come as a complete shocker to Puri Jagannath.
Earlier too, the man had the dates of Chiranjeevi. But with ‘Andhrawala’ turning out to be a disaster, his project with Chiru was shelved.
The man now intends to make ‘Auto Jaani’ with Ravi Teja and prove a point. Puri gave Ravi Teja, ‘Idiot’ which made the latter a box-office star. And with ‘Auto Jaani’, he is all set to prove a point to the mega-camp.
We can in all likelihood expect fireworks once again from the Puri-Ravi Teja team and should the movie turn out to be another big hit, it can cause quite some embarrassment to the mega camp.
Will Chiru’s loss turn out to be Ravi Teja’s gain?
