He is one of the star directors of Tollywood and his brother is a struggling artist. The star director here is Puri Jagannath and his brother is Sairam Shankar. The actor played character artist roles in his career starting stages in most of his elder brother’s movies and then debuted as lead hero with 143, which was a dud at BO. Puri even became producer for his brother with Hello Premistara, which was also a big disappointment.
Puri for his brother Sai made his associate Jaya Ravindra a full fledged director, donning producer avatar for the second time and that was Bumper Offer, an average grosser. Post this movie, Sairam came with Vade Kavali, another dud. Meanwhile, Puri is currently busy with Pawan’s Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu and he will next direct Allu Arjun for Iddaru Ammayilatho. Then Puri also has a project with NTR and we need to see whether this star director sacrifices any of his future assignments or allots special time to handle Sai once again in his own direction.
