Puri Jagannadh and his unit are currently in Portugal shooting for his upcoming film with Nandamuri Balakrishna which is yet to be titled. The film features Shriya Saran as the female lead. Balakrishna will appear in an ultra-modern look in this film which is being referred to as #NBK101. Sources close to the unit suggest that the action episodes in this film are high-octane and will be the highlight of the film. News has it that Puri Jagannadh’s daughter, Pavithra Puri will make her debut in acting with this film.
Pavithra is currently assisting her father in the direction department of this film. Sources close to the unit reveal that Puri Jagannadh has designed a quirky character for Pavithra and will have ample scope for performance too. Looks like the doting father is taking extreme care regarding the launch of his daughter in films.
Reports also suggest that actress Charmee is also assisting Puri Jagannadh in production works of this film. Charmee also manages the production works of Puri Jagannadh’s talent management firm, Puri Connects.
NBK 101 was launched in March 2017 amidst much fanfare and was attended by top filmmakers from Tollywood. Director Krish, Baahubali director SS Rajamouli and dynamic director Boyapati Srinu attended the launch of the film.
Puri Jagannadh is aiming to release the film before the end of 2017 and is working rigorously to wrap up the shooting of the film. The makers are considering many options for the title of the film since they want it to be a high-powered one.
