Our Readers might have remembered that Puri Jagannath had announced the sequel to his super hit movie, Idiot with Ravi Teja and Ileana in the lead roles but the project did not materialize and in the place Devudu Chesina Manushulu took place with the same combination. Puri was asked about Idiot-2 in a recent press conference, He said that he has shelved the project “Idiot 2” since he thought that he cannot add any extension to the original lead character.
The director said he watched the original in Bangkok and thought that it’s difficult to add any masala to the character “Chanti” in the film. “I initially planned to make idiot 2 with Ravi Teja but later changed my mind after reviewing the film once again. I called Ravi Teja and told him that I cannot make Idiot 2 since the original character will lose its credibility and dynamism”, said Puri Jagannath.
He added, “Since I cannot make the sequel, I decide to work with Ravi Teja for another film – Devudu Chesina Manushulu.
