Puri Jagannadh pens a heartfelt note after the massive failure of Liger at the box office
Mumbai (Maharashtra): Puri Jagannadh is one of the most successful directors of the South industry. But his recent failure at the box office, Liger, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday let down several of his fans. The loss was so massive that it led to severe backlash from the distributors and even caused ruckus for the compensation of losses. The issue became so serious that Puri Jagannadh even confessed to have received death threats. Now, the filmmaker has come out with a letter for his fans where he stated that he does not look at success and failure as opposites but as experiences.
He wrote, “If it is a success, money will come. If it is a failure, so much knowledge will come. So, we always gain mentally and financially… there is nothing in this world that we can lose. So, we should not look at everything as a failure. If bad happens, the bad people around us will disappear. Once we look back, we realize who remains there. Isn’t it good?”

“(People) will compliment you, accuse you, put you behind the bars, bail you out, clap and scold. So, if these things don’t happen in your life, make sure that they happen. Otherwise, there is a danger of not becoming a hero. That’s why we should live like heroes. If we want to live, we should be honest. There is no need of proclaiming myself as an honest person. There is no need of saving the truth. The truth will safeguard the truth. Truth always defends itself,” he added.
He further cleared the air surrounding the rumours of him cheating distributors of their money after facing losses. He wrote, “No one will do anything if we work without betraying others. If at all I had betrayed someone, it was the audience who bought the cinema tickets with a belief in me. I did no fraud to no one. Actually, I’m liable to my audience. I will do films and I will entertain them. Talking about money? Name at least one person who took at least one rupee when they died. Then I too will save (money). In the end, we all meet in the graveyard and everything that happens in between is all drama.”
