I developed the habit of drinking – Puri Jagan

Popular director and producer, Puri Jagannadh, recently featured in a popular Tv show. From tattoos to tensions, we got to know a lot more about the life of Puri as he had a open chat.

The first thing that attracted was the Tattoos that Puri had etched on his body. Puri explained that he liked tattoos and that slowly became an addiction. And later many topics were spoken of. About how Puri lost around 85 crores by being negligent towards money and how that put him into financial problems. And due to that depression, Puri slowly moved on to become a regular alcohol consumer.

While talking about his career, Puri narrated on how Pawan Kalyan gave him a break through into the TFI. He said that after loads of struggle to contact PK, he finally got a 30 minutes time frame to explain his story. But once he begun, PK was so impressed that he listened to the story for 4 hours straight. Eventually, Pawan starred in Puri’s ‘Badri’ movie and the rest is history.

Pokiri was one of the biggest hits of his career. When asked about what, he thought, was the reason for Pokiri’s success, Puri laughed saying that even he did not know how it broke the industry record then. Puri’s devotion towards god and his love for Bangkok were few of many secrets he open heartedly conversed with media.
