All these days it is very much publicized that Puri Jagan has lost the opportunity to direct Varun Tej because of his rift with Pawan Kalyan, and his revelations to a newspaper about it. However, few insiders are now saying that Pawan was no way involved in any rift with Puri and he is not a reason for his exit. But they say that producer Ashwini Dutt, who is the sentiment horse for our Mega heroes to get launched, hasn’t showed interest to put Puri on board. Due to some creative differences and work experience with Puri during Chirutha days, Aswhini Dutt reportedly wants someone else on board and so, Krish has popped up. While Film Nagar folks do not believe it, many say this is indeed true.
Considering his recent flops, maybe our producer has ruled out Puri Jagan, but he is the one top director in Tollywood at the moment who changes the body-language of a hero and present him. Many directors generally use stories for a hero, but Puri uses heroes for his stories.
