NTR sounded the clapboard, while Koratala Siva switched on camera and VV Vinayak directed the first shot. Financier Satte Rangaiah also participated in the pooja ceremony.
Dil Raju said, “Sai Dharam Tej is doing the film after delivering back to back hits with Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham, Subramanyam For Sale and Supreme. BVS Ravi had worked under my production house for few films such as Bhadra, Munna, Parugu, Mr Perfect. He had narrated me Jawan story couple of years ago and I then told him to develop the story. I really liked the story. We wanted to make Krishna as producer for long time and it is finally happening with the film. We’ll give full support like as if our own production in all aspects.”
Director BVS Ravi said, “Though title is Jawan, the film won’t have any connections with ‘Jawans’ (military persons). When a middle class family is in troubles, it needs a young guy to set things. Our hero has such qualities. Intikokadu is caption of our film. Like how Jawan is essential for our country, young guys with such attitude is necessary for every family. It’s a purely family drama film. Thaman has given wonderful music. Regular shooting of the film starts from March.”
Thaman said, “Songs have come out well. We know producer for long period. This is third film for me with Sai Dharam Tej.”
Sai Dharam Tej said, “I’m glad to do the film with support of Raju gaaru. I’m doing a film of good and unique story in the combination of Ravi and Krishna. The film will certainly be engaging and entertaining.”
