Laying all speculations about who will direct actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi in his much-awaited 150th film, to rest, actor Ram Charan reiterated that Puri remains in-charge of the landmark film.

Charan, who will be producing the film, says, story is the key for the megastar’s coveted project, rather than who directs it.

“Always, the story has been the most important thing for daddy. Anything else, comes only after that. He was impressed with Puri’s script and that is why he agreed to work on it. Puri is currently busy with Varun’s movie,” he informed and quicky added, “I cannot say anything about Varun’s film.

Over the past few days, several reports had emerged that Chiru was unhappy with Puri signing too many films and that the megastar felt the Pokiri director was not too focused on what is a crucial film for him. Speculations were rife that Chiru may reunite with Tagore director VV Vinayak instead.

Incidentally, though Charan confirmed that Puri was still working on this project, he did not rule out the possibility of other directors stepping in.

“There are many subjects right now. We will soon reveal who will be doing what. Puri has completed the first half, which my father loved. He’s currently working on the second half of the film, which I’m sure he will like too,” he added.

Charan, who’s currently working on an untitled project with Srinu Vaitla, said  he will start working with his uncle Pawan Kalyan once Pawan completes Gabbar Singh 2.
