Okkadu is purely young action oriented subject but a mass hero role for Mahesh is perfectly designed by Puri.
Following his template and comedy, Srinu Vaitla made Dookudu. But Puri could imagine Mahesh as a villainous good guy, in Bussiness Man.
But after that Mahesh found hits with Koratala films only and he did Brahmostavam, Nenokkadine, Spyder, Aagadu in-between his films that became big disasters.
Hence fans of Mahesh want him to break the mould and give Puri Jagannath another chance, so that he can make Jana Gana Mana.
They believe, Puri will present Mahesh in a different style and he will be able make the movie early too. Somehow, they think Anil Ravipudi is still not at that range to direct Mahesh, the way they want.
