“Pokiri” is a big hit in Tollywood. Recently, a news broke out in the media on Mahesh – Puri war during “Pokiri” time. It seems that Mahesh didn’t like the way Puri made up the story. It seems that Mahesh was upset for a while and took few days break from the shooting.
After few days, Mahesh is stated to have kept a condition that he should be shown as a cop who is in undercover operation, rather than showing him as a Pokiri. There is a buzz in the media that Mahesh even said that this change should be made to take the project forward.
Puri Jaganath accepted the deal and the shooting resumed. This episode turned out to be the main highlight of the flick and “Pokiri” flew off to a new level with this twist. Mahesh and Puri enjoyed success together in the later stage.
