Puri Jagannadh recently hit a jackpot at the box office with iSmart Shankar. The loud, commercial potboiler, starring Ram Pothineni in the lead, managed to set the cash registers ringing in Telugu states even as it was panned by critics.
iSmart Shankar, a crime drama, based on Hollywood film Criminal also had Nabha Natesh and Nidhhi Agerwal in the lead roles. The film was bankrolled by Charmee Kaur.
Reacting to the announcement, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma expressed his excitement on Twitter. “WOWWWW @TheDeverakonda and @purijagan COMBO will be RED HOT .. it will BURN the BOXOFFICE..Congrats to @Charmmeofficial for being so amazingly ISSMART (sic),” tweeted the Sathya director.

Earlier, speculations were rife that Puri Jagannadh has approached Kannada actor Yash for a project. It was expected that he will restart his project Jana Gana Mana with Yash.
At this moment, it is unclear whether the director will be making Jana Gana Mana with Deverakonda.
Vijay Deverakonda was last seen in debutant director Bharat Kamma’s Dear Comrade.
