During the promotions of the movie iSmart Shankar, director Puri Jagannath made some comments that did not go well with Mahesh Babu fans. Puri made an allegation that Mahesh will give a chance only if the director is in the success. He indirectly told that he would not do a movie with Mahesh even if the actor shows interest to work with him.
Puri Jagannath was trolled heavily for these comments and he even admitted the same in another interview. Going by the latest buzz, things are sorted between Mahesh Babu and Puri Jagan.
It seems that both the actor and director met recently and have solved the issues within themselves. Mahesh already told that he would never forget the contribution of Puri Jagan to his career. While shooting for the film Sarileru Neekevaru at Annapurna Studios, we hear that Puri and Mahesh met.
