Star director Puri Jagannadh is disappointed with the failure of his son's debut film Mehbooba. Puri himself penned the story of the film and directed it. Even though the movie created a good buzz, it completely failed in living up to the expectations of the fans and audiences. There is a rumor that Puri spent all his savings on his son's debut film. After the failure of 'Mehbooba', Puri announced that he will direct Akash's next film as well.
However, the latest sources in the industry reveal that Puri has dropped off the plan to direct the film and decided to provide the script for the movie. He wanted to give an opportunity to a talented young director. Puri has already roped in a debutante to direct his son's next film.
There is no clarity on this sudden change in plan from Puri Jagan.
