Dashing and dynamic director Puri Jagannadh's form has been very bad for the past couple of years. Though many thought that he was back with 'Ismart Shankar', it only ended up giving a false hope to his fans as his recent outing 'Liger' turned out to be a disaster.

He made 'Liger' on a huge budget for more than two years but the film is quite lazy in its writing and many thought that the writer-director took the audience for granted. Even his hardcore fans were not able to digest this poor output and he is now finding himself in deeper troubles due to this film. But the recent reports suggest that the 'Pokiri' director has a golden chance to direct Megastar Chiranjeevi.

As we know, his project 'Jana Gana Mana' with Vijay Deverakonda was shelved and Puri was seen playing a special cameo in Chiru's last outing 'Godfather'. Talk in tinsel town suggests that Chiru has given a green signal to Puri's storyline and wants Puri to approach with a complete script. Knowing Puri, it is going to be an out-and-out mass entertainer with his typical characterization. Apparently, Megastar gave full freedom to Puri regarding the script work and he will give his judgement only after the entire script is done.

If this news turns out to be true, Chiru's gesture is going to be very special. As we know, no big hero gives a chance to a flop director and Puri has around 10 films in the last five years. It looks like Puri's cameo in 'Godfather' and his help in promotions got him into the good books of Chiranjeevi. It is Puri who gave Charan the best debut with 'Chirutha'. This film showcased all the positive sides of Charan perfectly. He gave Allu Arjun his first mass hit with 'Deshamuduru' and made 'Iddarammayilatho'. Varun Tej's only mass movie was directed by Puri Jagannadh while Pawan and Puri gave hit movies like 'Badri' and 'Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu' together.

Puri narrated a script titled 'Auto Jaani' to Megastar a few years back. Chiru asked Puri to come with the complete script but it failed to impress him. We need to wait and see if Puri fulfills his long-lasting dream at least now or not.
