Puri Jagannadh is a famous director of Telugu cinema who made films with the biggest stars like Pawan Kalyan, Allu Arjun, Jr. NTR, Balakrishna and so on. However, a person whom he did not have the chance to direct is the one and only Megastar Chiranjeevi. Apparently, it was his dream to work with the Megastar.
Recently, Puri narrated the script of Auto Johnny to Chiru. But star Khaidi rejected the script because he did not like the second half. In a media interaction, the director revealed, he told another scenario in Chiru that the Megastar loved. He continued to say that he would not rest before making a film with Chiranjeevi.
At the words of Puri, Megastar liked the script of Auto Johnny too, but it was his close friends who changed his mind. The director grew up watching Chiru's movies and he pretends he knows best to present it on screen.
On the parallel, Chiranjeevi is shooting his next film, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy under the direction of Surrey Reddy. After that, it will be seen in a film directed by Boyapati Srinu and produced by Geetha Arts. Looks like there's a long way to go before Puri gets the chance to realize his dream of running Chiranjeevi.
