The astounding success of The Business Man has put Puri Jaggannath back in the big league of Tollywood directors. The director has now announced his plans to turn this standalone success into a total franchise with a sequel very soon
Hit Telugu film The Business Man gained great success, thanks to the outstanding dialogues written by Puri and strong performance by Mahesh Babu. The south superstar’s dialogue delivery has been praised and it looks that the Pokkiri team is just getting better and better. The film opened to good collections and may very well become one of the biggest hits in Tollywood history, in the long run. Puri’s partnership with Mahesh has once again proved to be a blockbuster.
Though Puri expressed his desire to make The Business Man 2, fans are sceptical as the director’s promise of Pokkiri 2 has not materialised even six years after the original’s release. At present Puri is involved in the sequel of his 2002 movie Idiots which starred Ravi Teja in lead role. This remake of the Kannada movie Appu was again a huge hit in Tollywood. If the sequel succeeds, we may very well see the other promises made by the director fulfilled, eventually leading to the making of The Business Man 2.
