Chennai, (IANS) Filmmaker Puri Jagannadh is on a roll. After bagging the opportunity to direct the much anticipated 150th film of megastar Chiranjeevi, he has now convinced superstar Mahesh Babu to collaborate for third time.
Puri and Mahesh have previously worked in Telugu films “Pokkiri” and “Businessman”.
“I’m happy to be teaming up with Mahesh for the third time. We’ve just locked the script. As soon as we’re relieved off our current commitments, we’ll start working on it. Nothing more can be divulged about the project now,” Jagannadh told IANS.
Mahesh is currently busy wrapping up Telugu drama “Srimanthudu” with Srinu Vaitla. He will soon start working on “Brahmotsavam” with Srikanth Addala.
Meanwhile, Puri’s project with Chiranjeevi is titled “Auto Jaani”, and it’s set to be launched on Aug 22 on the occasion of the latter’s birthday.
