Going by a reliable source from the mega compound, Chiranjeevi's 150 film, Auto Jaani with Puri Jagannadh is very much on. The project will take off from September soon after the director wrapping up his film with Varun Tej.
"The reports stating that V V Vinayak replaced Puri is completely baseless and a casual meeting is being blown out of proportion. Also, an official launch of Auto Jaani will happen on Chiru's birthday, August 22 and the project will go on floors in mid September", the source added.
Puri Jagannadh said to have proposed Varun Tej's Loafer only after getting a go-ahead from Chiru. Despite an official statement from Mega camp on Chiranjeevi and Puri Jagannadh's team up, confusion around Chiranjeevi 150 still continues.
The reports suggested that Puri Jagannadh has been sidelined from Chiranjeevi's come back film due to his unavailability in the proposed time period. All of a sudden, director V V Vinayak has come into the picture to direct Chiru's 150.
V V Vinayak and writer Chinni Krishna reportedly met Chiru recently and got a green signal for a story specially penned for him. Hence the rumors were rife that V V Vinayak is likely to replace Puri Jagannadh. However, like our source informed it, the facts are in contrast.
