Puri Jagannath is one among highly successful directors in the Tollywood. After phenomenal success of the film ‘Pokiri’, the expectations from the movie buffs skyrocketed.
He had three back to back duds before ‘Golimar’. Inspite of earning crores of rupees after directing 19 movies in his decade old career, puri jagannath is still staying in a rented house. ‘There are twists in my life too like the ones in my movies’, says the director.
After huge success of ‘Pokiri’, the director is showing special interest in action oriented movies. Except Trisha and Priyamani, Jagan worked with all newcomers with respect to heroines. It is very difficult to find right heroines, says the director. He had to reject 20 applicants before finalizing Asin for his film, ‘Amma Naanna O Tamil Ammayi’.
After ‘Pokiri’, Jagan prefers Bangkok to write script for his movies as he ‘feels more comfortable in that place, but it is not a sentiment’, says the director.
Few projects are in pipeline for Puri Jagannath with Balakrishna, NTR, Suriya, Amitabh Bachchan and Mahesh Babu and he is also making Bollywood debut with trilingual film titled ‘The Businessman’ starring Suriya, produced by Ram Gopal Varma Factory.
