Will he? Won’t he? There seems to be a constant see-saw of emotions experienced by the average Chiranjeevi fan. With the ambiguity surrounding the megastar’s landmark 150th film increasing with every passing day, fans are unsure as to what to believe anymore. Chiru sensationally announced in May that he will work on his 150th movie and confirmed that Puri Jagan will direct the film, which will be produced by his son, Ram Charan. Puri subsequently said that the film would be titled Auto Jaani and will go on floors on August 22. However, after a public fall-out between Puri and actor Nithin and his father Sudhakar Reddy, reports suggested that Chiru was unhappy with Charmme’s influence on Puri and was veering towards VV Vinayak to direct the film instead. A defiant Puri asserted that he was still in-charge and said he would come up with the best possible script. Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi’s elder brother Nagababu recently retorted that the title Auto Jaani has not yet been confirmed and that there is a chance it could be changed, a complete contradiction to Puri’s claims. The ambiguity surrounding the megastar’s much-awaited return to films after a span of eight years, has left fans wondering if it will happen at all. With the film set to go on floors in a little over a month, Chiru continues to look more like a politician. Looks like mega fans will just have to wait and see.
