Ram Pothineni‘s biggest hit film, “iSmart Shankar,” is getting a sequel titled “Double iSmart,” directed by Puri Jagannadh. Both Ram and Puri are looking to make a comeback following failures in films. In a bold move, producer-director Puri Jagannadh has pushed boundaries by investing a whopping ₹7 crores in the climax of “Double iSmart.”
This marks a significant milestone for Puri, reminiscent of the iconic climax fight in Mahesh Babu’s “Pokiri.” The 12-day shoot in Mumbai features Ram in a rugged and captivating look, adding anticipation to the film.
Despite the financial risks, Puri is embracing the bold approach, recognizing the inherent risks in the cinematic realm. The climax’s high budget underscores the director’s commitment to delivering an extraordinary cinematic experience.
The hope is that this daring move pays off, leading both the actor and director to achieve breakeven success. “Double iSmart” is scheduled for release on March 8th, and fans are eager to see if this ambitious venture becomes a turning point for both Ram and Puri Jagannadh.
