Anyway, here’s Puri Jagannadh Movies & his first choice of heroes he initially planned to do with…
Puri’s first choice of Hero: Pawan Kalyan
Puri wanted to cast ‘Pawan Kalyan’ as Pandu gadu.
I can’t even imagine ‘Mahesh Babu’ as LIGER. Puri narrated Liger’s script to Mahesh and he said no.
Even Puri narrated Liger to NTR and luckily he said no.
5. Jana Gana Mana – Mahesh Babu
A dream project of Puri, he only thought of Mahesh Babu as the lead and no one else. But Babu never finalized it.
6. Jana Gana Mana – Yash
Puri & Yash Jana Gana Mana rumors have stormed the internet. But it didn’t finalize.
7. Jana Gana Mana – Suriya
Puri narrated Jana Gana Mana to Suriya & he liked it, but for some reason, the combo didn’t happen.
8. iSmart Shankar
Thinking of NTR as iSmart Shankar is so weird.
9. iSmart Shankar – Akash Puri
Puri thought of making this movie with his son but eventually ended with Ustaad Ram Pothineni.
10. Businessman – Suriya
Puri wrote Businessman and narrated the script to Suriya, somehow the project didn’t happen, so the magical duo of Puri & Mahesh joined hands once again and delivered a kick-ass movie
11. Pokiri – Sonu Sood
Sonu Sood as Pokiri, that’s some wild thought before even Pawan Kalyan, Sonu Sood was the first choice, he wrote Pokiri for Sonu Sood, luckily nothing happened. The one and only Superstar nailed the role of Pandu Gadu with unbeatable swag.
Luckily Sumanth said no to this script as he felt it didn’t suit his body language.
13. Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi – Sriram
Before Ravi Teja, Sriram is the initial choice to play the hero role. Luckily it didn’t happen and our Ravi Teja performed it like a king.
