The much publicized Jr NTR starrer Jai Lava Kusa is progressing with the shooting happening at a brisk pace.
While it has been reported already that the star will be playing three different roles in the film and one of it would be the main antagonist, a deadly one at that, we have another interesting piece of information. Reports have surfaced that for one of the roles, Jr NTR may be playing a politician in the film.
A few stills from the shooting spot which has flags and banners with his photos on them have created this buzz. However, there is no official confirmation about it yet from the filmmakers.
Directed by KS Ravindra, this action drama is produced by Jr NTRâ€™s brother and actor Nandamuri Kalyan Ram under their home banner NTR Arts.
The film also has Bollywood actor Ronit Roy, making his debut in the Telugu film industry. He will be playing a baddie in it. Nivetha Thomas and Raashi Khanna play the female leads in Jai Lava Kusa. The technical crew include musician Devi Sri Prasad, cinematographer Chota K. Naidu and editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao.
The shooting of this film is underway and reports say that it will soon be reaching the final stages. The team is planning a September 21st release to cash in on the Dasara holidays, we hear. It may be mentioned here that there were rumours that Jai Lava Kusa is a remake of the Ajith starrer Varalaaru but the team has refuted this.
According to sources, both the films have the hero playing triple roles but there ends the similarity. Jai Lava Kusa, penned jointly by K. S. Ravindra, Kona Venkat and K. Chakravarthy, is a completely new story.
