Auto Johnny is one of the best characters represented by Megastar Chiranjeevi in his career. It was one of two roles played by Chiru in the movie 'Rowdy Alludu'. When Puri Jagannadh had a story with the same title for Chiru's return film, everyone was excited, but Chiru politely refused the story by citing the weak half-weak. Everyone is aware of this episode.
Coming to the present, there are discussions in the Nagar Film that the story of Puri Auto Johnny is remarkably similar to the "Paisa Vasool" of Nandamuri Balakrishna. It is known that Balayya appears as a conductor in the second half of 'Paisa Vasool' and that he carries parcels. The hero in the story of Auto Johnny is a car driver who carries parcels. But Chiru was not very impressed with the second half of the story because it's in the 'Pokiri' lines.
If this is really true, you must appreciate Megastar's judgment skills. Because Balayya doing an action animator is different from Chiru choosing similar story for his film back
