If there is any director whose films would have least cuts in the editing room, and who completes movies at a brisk pace and ends up scoring blockbusters, then it should be director Puri Jagannadh.Once lauded as the best in the industry, Puri Jagannadh had seen a slump after a string of his film bombed at the box office.
Undeterred by the failures, he bounced back with a resounding hit like iSmart Shankar.
All it took was just 3 months for Puri Jagannadh to finish Mahesh Babu starrer Businessman, and 89 working days to finish Pokiri.
We know what Pokiri is to Mahesh Babu and to the Tollywood film industry.Similarly, Businessman too managed to record as a blockbuster.
Shocking everyone, his upcoming film Fighter with Vijay Devarakonda is likely to take more time to shoot.
‘Puri Jagannadh is in no hurry and is more concerned than ever.
He wants to make sure he is getting everything right before he says OK for a shot.His film Fighter with Vijay Devarakonda will be the longest in terms of the number of shooting days.
The movie’s shoot is planned for 120 Days, which is the highest for a Puri Jagannadh film’ said a source.
Bollywood beauty Ananya Pandey is playing the female lead opposite Vijay Devarakonda, and Bollywood director-cum-producer Karan Johar is co-producing the movie along with Puri Jagannadh.
