Puri Jagannadh’s Mehbooba which introduces his son, Akash Puri as a hero got released recently and ended up as a big dud at the box office. Mehbooba is said to be made with a budget of 18 Crore Rupees but has resulted in 80 Percent losses. Puri Jagannadh who is the producer of the film as well as Charmi, the Co-producer reported lost more than 12 Crore. They are said to have got around 6 Crore from the theatrical run, satellite, and digital rights.
Puri Jagannadh who is already going through a bad phase in his career is shell-shocked with this failure. The director recently cleared off all the debts by selling off some assets and he also sold his Jubilee Hills house to make this Mehbooba but then has resulted in one more failure. Akash Puri has got better marks than his father in this debacle. Its high time, Puri Jagannadh takes a break for some time and think afresh. Even if he is in a hurry, the ace director definitely does not have any takers from the Top or happening heroes. It has to be seen what is in store for this Pokiri Director in the coming days!
