Chiranjeevi is upset @ Puri-Nithiin Film
Megastar Chiranjeevi is upset with filmmaker Puri Jagannadh, who is all set to direct the former in his 150th film titled Auto Jaani, according to sources.
Chiranjeevi is unhappy with Puri's decision to work on a film with actor Nithiin before their ambitious project.
Auto Jaani is slated to go on floors in the second week of August. Chiranjeevi feels Puri is not spending enough time on the film's pre-production and instead going ahead with Nithiin's film.
"Chiranjeevi wants Puri to concentrate on their film. He had recently suggested a few changes in the script as it was alleged to be plagiarised. Puri had promised to rework and get it back to his attention. Now, since he's announced a new project and plans to spend the next two months on it, Chiranjeevi is worried that his project may be affected," the source said.
And because of this, there are rumours that Auto Jaani may get delayed by afew months. A source privy to the project told us that Puri plans to meet Chiranjeevi before he starts Nithiin's project.
"Puri had agreed to work with Nithiin again after their last outing Heart Attack. In fact, Nithiin had even waited for a few months since his last release Chinnadana Nee Kosam for Puri to hear his script. They met last week and Nithiin liked what he heard and immediately gave his nod," the source added.
While Puri has finalised most of the support cast for his film with Nithiin, he's on the lookout for a newbie to play the heroine. Having recently completed Charmme-starrer Jyothi Lakshmi, Puri has retained the same technical team for Nithiin's film.
He will produce it under his own home banner Puri Talkies. Post-Auto Jaani, Puri will team up with Mahesh Babu for third time after Pokiri and Businessman.
