Puri jaganadh launched his son Akash Puri as a hero with the ambitious Indo-Pak romantic drama, Mehbooba, last year. However, the film suffered a major setback at the box-office. Since then, Puri has been extra cautious in finalizing Akash’s second project. He announced one project with Ram Pothineni, ‘iSmart Shankar’.
He right now, is concentrating on converting other script that he wrote for his son, to be made into a film. He will not direct it. Anil Paduri will direct the movie. He worked as assistant with Puri for many years. He will be supervising the movie production and will also see that the movie comes out better than the script, it seems. Shoot of the movie will start by end of this month, as per the new reports.
