What If Puri Debut Films With Krishna & Suman!

What If Puri Debut Films With Krishna & Suman!

For many star directors, their debut films went into troubles many times. Even for SS Rajamouli, he was supposed to direct the debut film of K Raghavendra Rao's son Prakash, but that film got called off after couple of days after shooting. Another film with Mohan Lal also got shelved before Student No 1 happened. Same is the case with director Puri Jagan, who has recently celebrated his 20th anniversary in Tollywood.

In fact, Puri Jagan's first film was "Thillana", which has Superstar Krishna in the lead. After 3-4 days of shooting, Krishna is said to have not liked the way Puri Jagan is directing the movie, and shelved it. Later, the director convinced hero Suman and their film is titled "Pandu". But this film never took off. Of course, rumours have that, both Thillana and Pandu are same stories, and later Puri made this as "Bachi" with Jagapathi Babu, which turned out to be a huge disaster.

One wonders what would have happened if Puri Jagan went on to make movies with Krishna or Suman, and those turn out to be disasters? His career would have got into more struggles for sure from there at the beginning itself. As he has done 'Badri' with Pawan Kalyan, he got a fantastic break for sure.

On the other hand, hero Krishna is said to have conveyed to Puri Jagan that he under-estimated him at that time, and felt glad when the director gave his son Mahesh Babu, his first industry hit with Pokiri, which actually paved way for the young actor to become a superstar.
