As Jai Lava Kusa turned to be a decent entertainer at the box office, those old rumors about the film may sure die down. But one comment made by Puri Jagan with his associates about this movie remains fresh in the memory of all.
Jr NTR was supposed to work with Puri Jagannadh for a film after the release of Ism, but it got shelved, for best know reasons of that movie's super performance at box office. The duo got busier with their next projects as days passed. Reportedly, Puri made some interesting comments about Jai Lava Kusa right after the teaser of Jai has been unveiled. He stated that Tarak's Jai role that got stammering as nature has been penned by him and narrated to the hero as well. NTR and his team, however, stayed calm without responding much about it.
Now after the release of Jai Lava Kusa, the film's director Bobby responded to the comments of Puri Jagannadh, as media asked him. He said 'I am not aware of Puri's comments about that stammering characterization. I approached NTR with a bound script and got his nod on the first go. I did not copy the text from somewhere, and I worked on it for months. NTR too has been delighted, and he signed the film on the spot. In case if Puri narrated a stammering-problem laced character, then NTR would have plainly told me'.
Well, there is no way to verify Puri's claims as said by many media houses, but for now, stammering is well portrayed by Jr NTR whether it is a role created by Bobby or Puri.
