The upcoming Telugu film Jaya Janaki Nayaka starring Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas has generated quite the buzz in Tollywood, and according to latest reports, the makers of the movie have now locked the runtime of the movie at 2 hours and 29 minutes. The movie recently completed formalities with the censor board where it was given a U/A certification. The film has been directed by Boyapathi Srinu and is a picturesque romance filled with some adrenaline filled action sequences.
The film also features Rakul Preet Singh, Pragya Jaiswal and Catherine Tresa in important roles. The sound track, written by Devi Sri Prasad, has hit the mark with the audience, and together with the posters and the teaser trailers, it has created the perfect stage for a grand release. In a recent interview, Srinu said that JJN is the first romantic movie since Bhadra, and the big budget is justified by the family entertaining script that is targeted for everyone. He also said that the action in the movie is not out of context, and action mixed with emotions is his signature style.
The movie has spent quite some time in the pipeline and saw a delay of as much as two years before shooting started in November 2016. For the leading lady, the makers struggled, first failing to sign Shruti Hassan and then Tamanna Bhatia, who was busy with the shooting of Baahubali 2 and then for another Tamil film. It was finally Rakul Preet Singh who was signed in January 2016. Reportedly, Sai Srinivas has spent a lot of time on his body language and will be sporting a brand new look for the film.
