Have slightly innovated with Jawaan : SDT

The actor talks about his upcoming film which is the first time he is joining hands with director BVS Ravi

Published: 11th July 2017

Actor Sai Dharam Tej is excited about the upcoming action-drama Jawaan because it gave him an opportunity to slightly innovate within the commercial space. The project marks the first collaboration between Tej and director BVS Ravi.

“I’m really happy with the way Jawaan has shaped up. Although it’s a commercial action film, we have tried something different, something innovative and I’m hopeful audiences will like it,” said the actor heaping praise on his director. The film marks Ravi’s return to direction after six years.

On teaming up with him, Tej remarked, “He is someone who is very clear about what he wants. I really liked the way he handled my characterisation. I play a guy who has to choose between his nation and family, and the events that lead up to it are very engaging.”

Tej clarified he doesn’t play an army officer. The film also stars Mehreen Pirzada and Prasanna. Asked if Ravi’s track record didn’t concern him, Tej said, “I also have two flops. I don’t see the track record of a director. What’s important is whether a director will be able to do justice to a story or not. It also has to be seen if audiences will accept that story.”
