When Puri surprised his son

When Puri surprised his son

When Puri Jagannadh told Akash Puri the story of 'Mehbooba', the latter wondered if it was written by his dad.  It's because the film's story is so unlike what the director has been known for.

"There is a reincarnation point in the film.  We have seen it before and after 'Magadheera'.  However, there comes a game-changing twist in 'Mehbooba'.  That's what makes it different," Akash says.

Puri had to sell off one of his houses for making the film.  He did it as he couldn't have expected some other producer to invest monies on his debutant son.  'Mehbooba', due to be released on May 11, is expected to become a big hit.
