Jai Lava Kusa stars Jr NTR in a triple role.

The first teaser from Jr. NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa, introducing the character Jai, was unveiled on Thursday evening. The 45-second teaser introduces NTR in a menacing avatar and he idolizes Raavan, giving his character a certain edge and also piquing the interest of audiences who are left to wonder if it’s a grey-shaded character or not. It’s also revealed that the character speaks with a stutter. The teaser clocked over 5 million digital views overnight and has been well received by fans and non-fans alike.

In the film, being directed by Bobby, NTR will be seen romancing Nivetha Thomas and Raashi Khanna, and this is the first time they’re pairing up with him. For one of his roles, NTR will be seen wearing prosthetic and his look is being handled by Hollywood make-up artist Vance Hartwell, popular for his work in films such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Shutter Island. The look of the antagonist’s role has already gone viral.

Apparently, NTR is kicked about the role as it’s something he hasn’t attempted before. In several of his interviews, he had said that he likes to be challenged by what he does and that gives him a high. While the makers have revealed the first look of one of the characters in the form of a poster, NTR’s other two roles are heavily guarded and it’s not quite sure what can be expected from the film, which is produced by NTR’s brother Kalyanram.

The character introduced in the teaser looks up to Ravana.
