Puri Jagannadh has recently tweeted that he will not be making any more movies with Powerstar Pawan Kalyan. This tweet has shocked many in the Telugu film industry. Pawan and Puri's first movie together was the superhit movie Badri in the year 2000.
Puri Jagannadh has been making movies for about 13 years and he has made about 26 movies so far. His latest movie Iddarammayilatho stars Allu Arjun, who is also Pawan Kalyan's nephew. He mentioned in an interview that he cannot reveal any more details about his clash with Pawan Kalyan because it might hurt Allu Arjun, with whom he will be making another movie very soon.
Puri Jagannadh was in fact introduced to Tollywood by Pawan Kalyan with the movie Badri and the last movie they worked together was Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu which released in October last year. It is now said that they had misunderstandings only after this movie.
Puri Jagannadh is one of the most respected directors in Telugu Film Industry and Pawan Kalyan is also one of the most celebrated actors today. This clash between them is most unfortunate because the movies with their combination has worked wonders before.
We will have to wait and watch if the two talented artists can manage to rectify their misunderstandings, what ever it might be, and come together to make another blockbuster movie like Badri.
