Puri Jagannath, who was once praising the Bachchans to heavens, seems to be not in good terms with them. The ace director, who had announced his plans to cast Abhishek Bachchan in the Hindi version of his Telugu movie The Businessman, has sacked the Junior B and replaced him with Mahesh Babu for the Hindi version too.
The filmmaker says that he considered Abhishek Bachchan's recent past track record and felt that casting him in The Businessman would not be a good idea, claims Puri Jagannath. The Bollywood star has lost the charm in him, which made the director to drop him.
Hence, he decided to rope in Mahesh Babu for the Hindi version of The Businessman. Puri Jagannath believes that the Pokiri actor can do complete justice in the Bollywood version despite not being fluent in Hindi.
However, it is said that Puri Jagannath's decision to drop Abhishek Bachchan is not surprising, as he faced troubles related to the payment from the AB Corp. in the Bollywood movie Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap.
