Puri Jagannadh craved a mark for himself with interesting hero characterizations and one-liners that pack a solid punch. He scored memorable hits like Pokiri, Idiot, and Badhri in the past, but that is not the case now. His recent movies have been termed disasters and had a miserable run at the ticket counters.

His latest venture, Mehbooba with his son, Akash as the main lead was believed to be his lifeline. Sadly, the movie had a forgettable run at the box office as the viewers bashed the movie for its uninteresting content and routine screenplay. However, that is not stopping Puri from directing his second movie with his son as the male lead. Yeah, you read that right, Puri will soon be making a second movie with his son.

The buzz is that Puri has already started location scouting for the project and will finalize the script works by next month. The interesting part is that Puri will be self-producing this movie as well. Everyone expected that Puri would opt for a noted production house, but he had other ideas. A major part of the movie will be shot at rich locales in the USA and India, said a source.
