Although he was going through a terrible phase as a director, Puri dared to launch his son Akash Puri as hero in his own. He had sold off a sprawling flat and invested all his savings on his son’s debut film ‘Mehbooba’. However, the film turned out to be a debacle at the boxoffice.
Undeterred, Puri announced that he will also be directing his son’s second film and even started working on the script. But then came the big change. We have exclusively learnt that Puri will not be directing Akash Puri’s next film, but he will only be providing the story and screenplay for the movie.
Puri has roped in a debutante to direct his son’s next film. And the reason behind Puri’s sudden change of plans is said to be a star hero. Apparently, Puri a noted hero has given his nod to act in Puri’s film and the project will go on the floors soon. It’ll be interesting to see how Puri’s plans for his son’s next will pay-off eventually.
