Superstar Mahesh Babu might have delivered many super hits but his career turning film will definitely be 'Pokiri'. Puri Jagannadh presented Mahesh Babu in a complete rough and massy style which became a huge trend. Mahesh delivered a terrific performance and gave life to Puri's imagination. It was the film that turned prince Mahesh into superstar Mahesh Babu.
They later came together for 'Businessman' and it was also a decent hit. Fans of Mahesh always say that Puri knows how to utilize Mahesh's full potential. Puri also announced that he will be making 'Jana Gana Mana' with superstar and the latter readily agreed to it a few years back.
But differences started to crop up between them and during the time of 'Ismart Shankar', Puri claimed that Mahesh only works with hit directors and added that he may not work with Mahesh in the future. During the pre release event of his 25th film, Mahesh thanked all his directors but left out Puri's name which created a lot of buzz at that time.
But it looks like things are cooling off between them as Mahesh said during his live interaction with fans that he will definitely work with Puri Jagannadh in the future if he comes up with a good script. He even added that he is one of his favorite directors. Let us hope they come together for a film in the future.
