About Pokiri

The Telugu movie was helmed by Puri Jagannadh and featured Ileana D'Cruz, Prakash Raj in lead roles while Nassar, Ashish Vidyarthi and Sayaji Shinde appear in supportive roles. Produced by Jagannadh and Manjula Ghattamaneni, the plot of the film revolved around a local goon whose killer instincts earn him not only his girlfriend's disapproval and a corrupt cop's enmity but also a riff with wanted don. Reportedly, the film grossed Rs 64 crore worldwide and remained the highest-grossing Telugu film for three years until it was surpassed by Magadheera in 2009.
