Puri keeping true to his word

Director Puri Jagannath is one of the best mass directors in Tollywood, without a doubt. The director has delivered several memorable movies throughout his career, and an evergreen film in the form of Mahesh Babu’s Pokiri, which was a game changer in the industry. However, the director has been suffering from the lack of a proper success for the past few years.

With the exception of his last film, Ismart Shankar, Puri didn’t have any other hit after Temper. There were a lot of expectations on his recent film Liger, featuring Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role. The film turned out to be a disaster, though, with the buyers of the film ending up in huge losses. Puri promised to compensate these losses for the buyers, and the director is said to have kept his promise.

Sources have revealed that the compensation has already been completed for a couple of buyers and that the remaining would be compensated very soon. On the other hand, due to the poor performance of Liger, Vijay and Puri’s second film, Jana Gana Mana, has been put on hold for now, and there’s no confirmation on when the film would resume shooting.
