Yesterday during the pre release event of Maharshi,Telugu Superstar Mahesh Babu mentioned about directors like K Raghavendra Rao, Krishna Vamsi, Srinu Vaitla, Gunasekhar, and Koratala Siva, but forgotten an important one, and he was none other than Puri Jagannadh. Though Mahesh Babu did not forget to make comments on Sukumar indirectly but he forget to mention the name of Puri Jagannadh who gave him hit movie Pokiri. Yesterday when Mahesh Babu released the youtube link of Maharshi Trailer on his Twitter, the movie lovers trolled Mahesh Babu for not mentioning the name of Puri Jagnnadh in his speech.
Few comments by the netizens on Twitter are as follows:
yuvan phaneendra @YSP146 : @PuriConnects @purijagan Sir this for u mahesh sir…you forget but we cant
Surender Patibandla @surenderdas7: Sir you did not talk about Pokiri and Businessman nor about @purijagan sir, is their any indifference between you both? #MaheshBabu #MaharshiPreReleaseEventOnMay1st
Finally Mahesh Babu realized his mistake very quickly and made on tweet on Puri Jagannadh, “Missed mentioning an important person in my speech today. In my 25 films journey, it was #Pokiri that made me a Superstar. Thank you so much @purijagan !!! Thanks for giving me Pokiri A film that will always be remembered.”
Actually, Puri Jagannadh’ Pokiri is the film which made Mahesh Babu a superstar forever.
On the other side, Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh starrer Maharshi, directed by Vamsi Paidipally is gearing up for grand release on 9th May.
