Puri Jagannadh’s recent directorial, Liger, which was released on a pan-India scale, tanked miserably at the box office. The Vijay Deverakonda-starrer hit the theatres with unfathomable anticipation but failed to impress the audiences with its sports-drama genre. The wounds of Liger’s box office debacle haven’t healed yet as the director juggles between the feud with the movie’s distributors and a legal dispute with the Enforcement Directorate (ED). While Puri deals with the woes of ‘Liger’, reports have surfaced regarding the filmmaker's next project. 

To redeem his old charm, Puri is reportedly keen on having Megastar Chiranjeevi as the lead for his upcoming film. Puri and Chiru had previously planned to collaborate for the latter’s 150th film titled ‘Auto Johny’. However, the film was shelved after Chiru asked the director to revamp the second half of the script. A delay in Puri’s rendition caused the Megastar to move on with Khaidi No 150 in place of ‘Auto Johny’. Thereafter, fans pondering about the shelved project reduced in number as time passed. 

The latest buzz has brought ‘Auto Johny’ into the limelight once again. Nevertheless, Puri’s upcoming film with Chiranjeevi will have an entirely new script as confirmed by the filmmaker on an Instagram Live session with the Megastar. Speculations are rife that Megastar will join hands with Puri after wrapping up his upcoming lineup. Chiru has Bobby's directorial Waltair Veerayya slated for a Sankranthi 2023 release and Meher Ramesh’s Bhola Shankar in his lineup. While ‘Bhola Shankar’ is yet to complete its shoot schedule, the movie is expected to hit the theatres in the second half of 2023.
