Filmmaker Puri Jagannadh and Charmme Kaur's Puri Connects & Puri Jagannadh Touring Talkies banners' upcoming movie is iSmart Shankar. This movie, starring Ram Pothineni, Nidhhi Agerwal and Nabha Natesh in the lead, has music by Mani Sharma. Reports state that this venture will be a commercial entertainer where Ram plays a youngster with split personality disorder. The shoot for this movie is currently going on at a rapid pace in Hyderabad and the project is expected to hit screens for this summer!
Meanwhile, we have reports coming in that director Puri Jagannadh is extremely happy with the way the movie is shaping up and being the producer himself, he has already registered the title of the sequel too! A little birdie close to the production house reveals, "Puri sir is very happy with the way iSmart Shankar is turning out and has already registered the title Double iSmart for the sequel, at the Film Chamber in Hyderabad!" We also hear that Ram himself would be playing the lead, in the sequel too.
The cast of iSmart Shankar includes Puneeth Issar, Ashish Vidyarthi, Milind Gunaji and Satya Dev in the lead roles. Director Puri has not had a proper hit to his name, since his blockbuster hit Temper, with Jr NTR, in 2015! Ram too is looking out for a hit to add to his name and we are sure that this duo would give their best to make this project a success!
