Puri Jagannadh’s heroes are expected to be raw, rugged, unhinged, and unabashed with a lot of swag and attitude. When Liger was announced, everyone felt that Puri and Vijay Deverakonda’s combo would take stun everyone with a pulsating film. But Liger turned out to be one of Puri’s worst films and Deverakonda’s efforts went in vain.
The director is now on the lookout for a hero who would star in his next film. Though there are reports that Balakrishna or Ram might accept his next, nothing has been finalized yet. Especially after Liger’s result, any hero would be skeptical to sign a Puri Jagan film.
There is a talk that Vishwak Sen would perfectly fit in the universe of Puri Jagannadh films. He has got the right attitude and charisma to portray the hero’s character in a Puri film. Since big heroes might be tough to convince after Liger, Puri Jagan should try to rope in Vishwak for his next.
But despite being a hero of films with a small budget, Vishwak Sen is very choosy while selecting films. He will not sign a film unless he is completely sure of what he is getting into.
But honestly speaking, Puri will have a tough time convincing Vishwak also for his next, such is the effect of Liger.
