Puri Jagannadh’s Counter to Chiranjeevi?
Director Puri Jagannadh is gearing up for his upcoming film Lofar starring Varun Tej, the nephew of Megastar Chiranjeevi, in lead role. The audio launch function has been planned in a grand manner. Going by latest updates, the film makers are yet to finalize details of the Chief Guest. But gossips reveal that it is young rebel star Prabhas who will be gracing the audio launch event on 7th December in Hyderabad. Usually, Chiranjeevi is the chief guest at all the big events related to actors from Mega family. But this time, Prabhas has been invited as the chief guest for mega hero Varun Tej’s film event, say sources.
The decision has surprised many people as a hero other than mega heroes is attending the audio launch of Varun Tej’s film Lofar and megastar will not be the Chief Guest. Earlier, there were rumors that Puri would direct Chiranjeevi’s 150th film but later, the director went on record to say that he was hurt when Chiranjeevi announced to the media ‘Puri failed to impress with the second half’. The producer of Lofar reveals that they want to conduct the audio function differently. So, he said, they are moving with a different strategy.
