After the exceptional success of Sarrainodu, director Boyapati Sreenu had a chance to collaborate with any hero of his choice and the great producer of his option. However, Boyapati decided to collaborate with Bellamkonda Srinivas and Miryala Ravinder Reddy in keeping his word. This has actually left a lot of shock in the industry. As Jaya Janaki Nayaka is ready to be released today, we caught up with Boyapati for a frank conversation before the film's release.
I promised Bellamkonda Srinivas a movie. After Sarrainodu eventually touched the industry, many told him to work with a star. But I decided to correct only Bellamkonda Srinivas. For me, ethics is more important. In my opinion, a person who has no ethics, morals and character has no value. And above all, Bellamkonda Srinivas corresponds well to the role of Gagan (protagonist). After watching the film, you will agree with me.
Although it has various nuances and various elements, Jaya Janaki Nayaka is a pure love story. This is by far my best love story. In fact, it will be much better than Bhadra (Boyapati's old love story). The film has strong female characters who play an important role in the story. In other words, Jaya Janaki Nayaka is ahead of my previous six films. The biggest challenge was to change the image of Bellamkonda Srinivas. He looked after it a lot and molded it. He had better performances, dances compared to his previous films.
Yes. Before Sarrainodu, we launched a film with Bellamkonda Srinivas that did not materialize for various reasons. After that, I moved on to Sarrainodu. And there is a gap. So we decided to choose an updated story that suits the current age. I observed a special quality at Rakul during Sarrainodu. She is a very good actress. While I was working on Jaya Janaki Nayaka, I felt that Rakul would be perfect for the role of Janaki. Catherine is also very good actress and good dancer. She will be seen in a special song that will inspire everything.
