Bobby, the director of “Jai Lava Kusa” lifted NTR to the sky when he said that any other hero would have taken 1.5-2 years to complete the film. He added that he might not have even made the film if NTR hadn’t agreed to do it.
During an interview, Bobby said that it was a herculean task to complete a star hero’s film in such short time as the hero was essaying triple role in the film. “Our JLK team however managed to wrap up the film in under six months without compromising on the quality only because of NTR. It would have taken 2 years for any other hero to complete this film. In fact, I wouldn’t have dared to do this film with any other hero,” Bobby said.
“Not many actors can show three variations in a single film with so much ease. Tarak understood the requirements of the three characters during the story discussion stage itself and he accepted the film after doing home work on ‘Jai’ character for one week. I was surprised at the mannerisms he had come up with to look authentic as a person with stammering problem. A director’s work becomes very easy when he works with an actor who has so much understanding,” the director divulged describing how easy NTR made his job.
Recollecting how JLK happened, Bobby said that he had huge pressure on him while penning the story of JLK as he was just coming out of ‘Sardaar’ fiasco. “I was sure that NTR will own the film if he I could get his green signal, which I did, fortunately. Tarak owned the script more than I had expected,” he concluded.
