At a time when all the big directors are demanding more than year to complete a film, Puri Jagannadh told his producer that all he needs is just 70 working days to finish off the shooting of The Businessman

Puri Jagannadh is planning to start the shoot of The Businessman with Mahesh Babu from September 1st or in the first week of that month and has given the schedule of 75 working days before wrapping it up in the first week of January 2012. 

Producer Venkat is thrilled with Puri Jagannadh`s schedule because most directors take at least 130 working days if a big star like Mahesh acts in the movie and also takes plenty of time for post-production and time for resting between the schedules. 

Where as Puri said he'd complete the film in just four and half months and release it on Jan 12, 2012. 

Remember the movie is an action entertainer and normally action movie needs more time for shoot but Puri is confident of pulling it off within no time. 

If he really does, it will put pressure on other directors to wrap off the movies 'on time' and augurs well for the Telugu film industry which is struggling to cope with an ever increasing production cost.
