Sai Dharam Tej pinned a lot of hopes on Jawaan to put him back in the reckoning. After getting a very good start to his career with decent commercial hits, Tej career has gone off track with a series of failures.
Films like Thikka, Winner and Nakshatram did damage to his market value to an extent that he is badly in need of a hit now.
At his crucial juncture, Megastar’s nephew made sure to have his lucky charm Dil Raju as the presenter of Jawaan.
All of SDT’s successful films came under the supervision of Dil Raju. Although Dil Raju hasn’t invested money in Jawaan, he has taken the responsibility of the film. He will take care of the promotions and also ensure that the release timing is right.
Jawaan filming is complete and it was supposed to hit the screens on Sep 1. However, they pulled back after Paisa Vasool makers reserved that date.
Meanwhile, Dil Raju who has watched the film (without rerecording) is reportedly not impressed with the outcome. He suggested many changes which will need a bit of reshoot. If the buzz is to be believed Jawaan wouldn’t be releasing in September or October.
It may get pushed to November or December as Dil Raju wants the repair job to be done before taking a call on the release date.
