Director Teja made a strong comeback with Rana’s Nene Raju Nene Manthri as the movie had a solid run at the box office. Interestingly, he got the chance to direct a movie with Venkatesh as the main lead and also NTR biopic. As expected, all eyes were set on the NTR’s biopic as it is being made on the legendary Sr NTR. However, Teja stepped out of the project, saying he cannot handle a project of such a huge scale.

Balayya, who is also a co-producer for the film, started the search for a new director and the names of Krish and Raghavendra Rao came on the table. However, none of these top directors spoke out about the movie. Just when a cloud of uncertainty was forming on the project, an exclusive report is claiming that Puri Jagannadh has been finalized to direct the prestigious movie.

Balayya was really comfortable while shooting for Paisa Vasool and fell in love with Puri’s making style. Interestingly, Balayya has taken a big risk by picking the star director who delivered a flop with him. It needs to be seen if the dynamic director can fulfill Balayya’s wishes this time around.
