Fell in love with Samantha on screen – Rana Daggubati
Rana said, “Nandini Reddy narrates all her stories to me and ends up making films with other heroes. I saw Boyz film when I was in intermediate. Siddharth looks like a school kid even after 10 years. I have fallen in love with only two heroines by looking at their onscreen presence. They are Sridevi (Kshanakshanam) and Samantha (Ye Maya Chesave).”
Kona Venkat said, “Everybody has stretched their limits for Jabardasth. It is a mass entertainer.”
Gangaraju Gunnam said, “I heard that Sid has migrated from Mac to Windows with Jabardasth film.”
Sunil said that he has done a voiceover for Jabardasth.
VV Vinayak said, “It was a daring decision to release Bellamkonda Suresh’s last film Bus Stop on Sunday and it worked. Nandini Reddy earned a lot of respect from all of us with her debut film Ala Modalaindi. Siddharth looks different compared to his earlier films. Samantha can speak nice Telugu. I liked Allah Allah song very much in this album. Taman composed a nice album.”
Thaman said, “My earlier film Love Failure with Siddharth has a class album. The album of Jabardasth has mass masala in it. This is my 4th film with Bellamkonda Suresh as a producer.”
Samantha said that working for this film is like a paid holiday and the team is like her family.
My character is like that of Govinda and Jim Carrey - Siddharth
Siddharth said, “No director who delivered a superhit as their earlier film came to me to sign. Nandini is the first director to do it so. Jabardasth is a mass comedy entertainer. My character is like the ones played by Govinda and Jim Carrey. I never make a statement after watching first copy. But for this film, I can confidently say that Jabardasth is going to be a super hit film after watching first copy. 2013 marks as the 10th year for me as an actor. This is 12th year for me in film industry (he worked in direction department of Mani Ratnam earlier). I have acted with Srihari in Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana. Now I did another film in his combination. Thaman is the number of music director of Telugu cinema at the present.”
Table profit for Jabardasth – Bellamkonda Suresh
Bellamkonda Suresh said, “I was hesitant to make this film at first as my friends warned me that I will lose money with Siddharth as hero. It was my wife who pushed me to start this film. Though the film is delayed I am happy to announce that Jabardasth has made table profit.”
New angle in Siddharth and Samantha - Nandini Reddy
Nandini Reddy said, “Thaman has composed an outstanding album. The best quality in Thaman is that he never tries to convince us when we reject his tunes. He keeps them aside and composes new tunes. Bellamkonda Suresh is one of the best producers in Telugu film industry. The only reason why I cast Siddharth and Samantha is that they are fantastic actors. You will see a new Siddharth in this film. He has got an amazing comedy timing which was not explored in his films so far. You will call him Siddharth Carrey after this movie. A new angle (rowdy angle) is also shown in Samantha’s character in this movie. Veligonda Srinivas has written nice dialogues. Kona Venkat has been very supportive to me for a decade.”
