It’s common knowledge by now that Mahesh Babu, had thought of teaming up with director Puri Jaganndah, soon after his present commitment Aagadu with Srinu Vytla. But destiny has other plans for Mahesh. Owing to his contract with UTV films, Mahesh Babu has to begin working on their project with director Koratala Siva which was announced much earlier. With this, Puri Jagan has to wait for a while to direct Mahesh.

Puri, who is known for wrapping up projects at a breakneck speed, has decided to do a film before his project with Mahesh takes off. He is going to direct none other than Jr NTR. Puri and NTR, who haven’t joined their forces after debacle of Andhrawala (ten years ago in 2004), have now decided to break that jinx. Puri has apparently narrated a story line to NTR who quite impressed with it.NTR has given a go-ahead to Puri, if rumour mills are anything to go by.

NTR, who is currently sweating out for Santosh Srinivas’ Joru (tentative title), may finish it by the end of April. It’s a cake walk for Puri to get ready by April as he finishes a script within 20 days. If all goes well, this project will go onto floors from May. It’s not clear who is going to produce the film and other cast. So, NTR is first for Puri and Mahesh is second as per the commitments. Meanwhile, directors Sukumar, Koratala Siva and Vamsi Paidipally too busy weaving stories for NTR. Despite going through rough phase, NTR is hot cake for the top directors in tinsel ville.
