Maheshbabu To Take Up ‘Jana Gana Mana’ First
There is a sudden bolt from the blue. No one has an idea about the project in the combination of Puri Jagannath and Maheshbabu. The maverick director had even announced the title of the film as ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and posted a poster also. How come this sudden project has come up. When we tried to dig into details, we came across some interesting details. It is learnt that Puri Jagannath had prepared a subject keeping NTR in his mind. However, NTR did not like the subject. Even if he agrees to do the movie, Puri is forced to wait for a long time. He has to first finish the present project ‘Janatha Garage’ later he has to do a film with Vakkantham Vamsi, which NTR had committed to do. So, Puri had made certain modifications and narrated the subject to Maheshbabu and he was impressed with the storyline. Moreover, Maheshbabu who was supposed to do a film with Murugadoss as hero after the present assignment ‘Brahmotsavam’. However, it seems Murugadoss sought some more time to complete the pre-production works. In this backdrop, Maheshbabu has asked Puri to prepare the complete script as early as possible, so that he could complete Puri’s movie before Murugadoss’ movie. Maheshbabu taken this decision as Puri is notorious to complete the film in a short time.
