Puri Jagannadh is presently doing a film with Nandamuri Balakrishna and the regular shooting has been commenced recently. Suprisigly there were reports that Puri will do a movie with Venkatesh even before Balayya film.. and it was reported later that the project has been shelved due to the budget issues.
But latest update reveals that Puri-Venky project was not shelved.. but it has been put on hold. It is known that Venky-Krish film.. or Venky-Kishore Tirumala film 'Aadallu Meeku Joharlu' didn't materialize. Moving on to their next films, Krish is doing his next film with young heroes.. Kishore Tirumala is doing a film with Ram. As Venky was showing more interest on Puri's patriotic story, he said to have decided to go with Puri for his next film.
As Puri started Balayya film recently, Venky has the time to do a film by the time Puri completes Balayya project. But Venky is said to be not keen on doing a film in this gap. Moreover Venkatesh doesn't do films in the Summer season. So, he will not participate in shootings till the end of June. Whatever be the case, Puri-Venky film will go to the sets from October.
