Many heroes reject’s many stories but finally, one hero does that project and grab that blockbuster hit. This is the routine story in the film industry.
Here is an interesting incident that happened with Superstar Mahesh Babu. We all know that Pokiri film became such a huge sensation at the box office. Puri Jagannath wrote this story and wanted to make this film with Ravi Teja but it did not happen. At that time, he selected the title of the film as Uttama Singh S/O Suryanarayana. Nagababu was supposed to produce this film.
This film was actually planned after the release of Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammayi. But due to Ravi Teja’s busy schedules, it did not happen that time. On the other hand, Puri Jagannath was busy with NTR’s Andhrawala and Nagarjuna’s Sivamani.
After many years, he narrated the same story to Mahesh, he showed interest to do this movie but he asked to change the title. Puri changed the title as Pokiri!! If you observe the recent flicks Gabbar Singh and S/O Sathyamurthy, Puri already invented these titles many years ago
