Director Puri Jagannath has been eagerly waiting to make his dream project, Jana Gana Mana, for quite some time now, but hasn’t been able to make it a reality. His initial plan was to make it with Superstar Mahesh Babu, and the film was even announced. However, this didn’t happen, and the film was finally launched this year, with Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role.
After wrapping up a single schedule of the film, the film got shelved because of the utter failure of Liger, which was directed by Puri Jagannath. It is now being said that Puri is trying to get the film made with Bollywood actors. Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal are said to be in talks for the film, with the director’s team said to be trying their very best to get either of them to say okay.
Liger was released in August this year, and turned out to be a huge disaster, despite decent expectations. The film turned out to be a huge loss for distributors, who were later compensated by director Puri.
