After a long wait and three months of postponement, Jawaan is hitting the screens on December 1. As a part of promotions, director of the film, BVS Ravi as interacted with media and reveals the story of Jawaan. Starring Sai Dharam Tej, Prasanna and Mehreen in lead roles, the film had to release in September and has been postponed due to theatres and reshooting issues.
The director says that they haven’t hidden anything about the movie or the story till now, and that they have tried to convey the storyline in the trailer itself. But, the actual element has to be watched on screen. “The action-based entertaining story is in the second half of the film which will show how important is DRDO to our country and the hard work its employees do to bring pride to our nation. Octopus will be one of the missiles they will invent while the antagonist wants to own it and make money,” Ravi said.
The film also has Tamil actor Prasanna, who plays the antagonist. With this film, Prasanna will be making his debut in Telugu cinema and director Ravi praises the actor for his dedication towards work. “It’s really great to have him in the film. He used to take the script two days before the schedule and byheart all the dialogues. He has done a lot of homework and was disciplined and punctual to work. In fact, everybody in this film, including Rajesh and Subbaraju, has done a lot of hard work for this film. I was fortunate to have such people on board,” the writer-director further added.
For a twist, as has been assumed so far, Sai Dharam Tej is not an Army Jawaan in this film but an RSS Jawaan. He’s such a Jawaan who is always ready to do anything for the country. Mehreen will be seen in a glamorous role, as a painter. Her bubbly character will be dominating Dharam actually, reveals Ravi.
