Puri, who is currently finishing the bits and pieces of Varun Tej starrer ‘Loafer,’ will complete this film in not more than a week or two. Later on this film’s audio will be launched in Hyderabad and the film in mid-December.

Once ‘Loafer’ hits the screen, Puri will complete the story writing part, cast and crew selection of ‘Rogue.’ From January, this film will begin its regular shooting.

Jagan, who has a good track record of launching heroes, has succeeded quite well in the process. Ram Charan, Sai (Puri’s brother), Puneeth Raj Kumar were all introduced by this contemporary director.

Appreciating his approach towards films, producer CR Manohar has handed over the responsibility of launching his son Ishan. Ishan, who stands tall at 6’1, is hoping that his debut film will be a fortune turner for him in the film industry.

While coming to the heroine selection, many top faces were approached by the Manohar(producer of Rogue). Tamannaah and Shruti Hassan were asked for this film, but commitments becoming prior left Puri with no option rather opting for a new face.

After introducing Disha Patani with Loafer, Puri will now bring in Amyra Dastur into Tollywood with Rogue. Dastur has done couple of films in Bollywood and starred opposite Dhanush in ‘Anegan.’

‘Rogue’ will be shot simultaneously in Telugu as well as in Kannada.
