The title of Jaggesh's latest film has been finalised as Beedi Basava and not Beedi Basavanna as reported earlier. Director Kodlu Ramakrishna announced the title during the launch of the film recently. A media conference was organised after the muhurath function. Actor Jaggesh, actress Nikitha, director Kodlu Ramakrishna and the three producers attended the press meet.
Jaggesh said that Kodlu Ramakrishna has been approaching him for many years to act in his film. He has finally found the time to do this comedy flick. "He narrated two stories to me out of which I chose the story of Beedi Basava. And then Kodlu took nearly four months to write the script along with actor Mohan. I was also involved in the making of the script. Some of my suggestions have also been incorporated in the script", said Jaggesh. He added that it is a performance-oriented film with right dose of comedy, action and sentiments.
Kodlu Ramakrishna said that he took nearly four months to write the script of Beedi Basava, though he usually takes only one or two months for a script. He thanked Mohan for helping him write the script and thanked Jaggesh in a special way for his contributions to the making of the script.
Heroine Nikitha said that she is playing a simple village girl's role in the film who is very supportive to the hero. Nikitha had already worked in Maharaja with Sudeep. She had also worked in films like Tata Birla and Raja Kumari which are yet to be released.
