Puri Jagannath said that he has shelved the project "Idiot 2" starring mass maharaja Ravi Teja. Addressing a press conference yesterday (July 23) in Hyderabad, the director said that he has dropped the project since he thought that he cannot add any extension to the original lead character.
The director recently saw the film in Bangkok and thought that it's difficult to add any masala to the character "Chanti" in the film. "I initially planned to make idiot 2 with Ravi Teja but later changed my mind after reviewing the film once again.
I called Ravi Teja and told him that I cannot make Idiot 2 since the original character will lose its credibility and dynamism", said Puri Jagannath. Puri said that since he cannot make Idiot 2 anymore, he decided to work with Ravi Teja for thid film. "Since I cannot make the sequel, I decide to work with Ravi Teja for another film - Devudu Chesina Manushulu.
