Director Puri Jagannadh shares his first meeting with Pawan Kalyan regarding Badri movie and said he requested Chota K Naidu to fix time for story telling. He said Chota asked him to tell him the story first and will send him to Pawan if he likes the story. Puri said he told Chota the story of Sravani Subramanyam which he liked so much and sent him to Pawan Kalyan to tell him the story. Puri said after listening the story PK asked him that Chota told me some suicide story and you are telling a different story. Puri said he did that only not to miss the chance as Badri story will have a track of hero loving two heroines simultaneously which can't be accepted by audience.
