With the fame he received with Badri, people had developed confidence in Puri Jagannath that any movie he directs would become a hit and Itlu Sravani Subrahmanyam proved it. In the shooting of Idiot which is still under production, Director Puri Jagannath revealed the developments of this movie when Ragalahari.com met him.
Idiot, the title sounds peculiar. Why actually is that name given?
That's how she (Heroine) calls him (Hero).
After Itlu Sravani Subrahmanyam, you are again doing a movie with Ravi Teja, Any reason behind it?
Raviteja can enhance the appearance of the character in this movie. He acts freely.
What are the qualities in Ravi Teja that deeply impressed you?
The zeal & enthusiasm in him is not found in everybody. He is so lively & energetic. Moreover, he is young and is in the right age. Mainly, our frequencies are compatable and the mutual understanding we have must be keeping us close.
The title Itlu Sravani Subrahmanyam had positive impact on the people as they received it well and now you gave the title Idiot to your movie. You are showing uniqueness in choosing the titles! Why?
When it comes to the title, most of the films coming today almost sounds alike. Not much variation I feel. That's why to be different, I've chosen this title "Idiot".
Could you tell us something about Idiot?
The subject is not new. It's an ordinary love story. But the way it is presented is distinct. The hero's character in this movie and the behavior looks new. This will definitely attracts the audience.
How far has the shooting come?
Only the first part has completed. We are going to release the movie in August.
