According to the reports from sources close to the development, it was one of the hardest roles that Bellamkonda Srinivas has ever played in the upcoming Telugu movie ‘Jaya Janaki Nayaka'. Director Boyapati Srinu had earlier signed on Bellamkonda Srinivas for some other movie that hit rough waters and was put on the backburner. But for Boyapati Srinu, the decision to cast Srinivas in ‘Jaya Janaki Nayaka' wasn't just to "honor a commitment". The director while talking about the movie said that he did not to go with the old script for sentimental reasons. He also added that he had the theme of ‘Jaya Janaki Nayaka' in mind for a long time, and he decided to go with it.

Meanwhile, Bellamkonda Srinivas didn't have it easy to get into the character of the film. The director of the movie while talking about Srinivas's role in the film said that for every film, he tries to take on the lead hero's body language into consideration and shape the script accordingly and that was the reason that Allu Arjun too underwent a drastic makeover for his role in ‘Sarrainodu'. The director further added that with Srinivas, he had an advantage of grooming a raw young man. He said that he has watched Srinivas in his previous films and then prepared a comprehensive SWOT analysis of styling, body language, diction etc. The director then made Srinivas to gain 30ks and then lose 15 of that, and all of this was done in a time span of three months. He also said that he literally put Srinivas though hell for those three months but in the end, all went well for the movie and that what matters.
