DevelopmentEdit

On August 2019, sources claimed that Nani will collaborate with Shiva Nirvana, for an untitled project, marking their second collaboration after Ninnu Kori (2017). The film was reportedly produced by Sahu Garapati and Harish Peddi, under the banner Shine Screens.[5] The film's title poster was released on 3 December 2019,[6] with the title being revealed as Tuck Jagadish.[7][8]

Although there was no information on the genre or the plot,[9] it speculated that the protagonist's character in the film will be reportedly suffering from bipolar disorder,[10] for which Nani clarified that the news is false.[11] The actor also claimed not to experiment genres with the film, post the dismal outing of V (2020).[12]

CastingEdit

In 2 December 2019, Ritu Varma was cast alongside Nani, after being previously collaborated for Yevade Subramanyam (2015).[13] The film marked her return to Telugu films after Kesava (2017),[14] where she was reported to play a village girl in the film.[15] Aishwarya Rajesh was also cast in the second leading role, with Jagapathi Babu being seen as Nani's brother.[16][17] The cast members also included Nassar, Daniel Balaji, Thiruveer, Rohini, Devadarshini, and Praveen.[18]

FilmingEdit

The film was launched officially on 30 January 2020,[19] with principal shoot began on 11 February 2020. The filming initially took place in Pollachi after which the crew headed to Rajahmundry to shoot some crucial scenes, an action sequence and a song was planned to be shot,[20] before filming came to halt, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[21] On 7 October 2020, Nani resumed the shooting of the film in Hyderabad,[22] adhering to the safety guidelines ensured to curb COVID-19 spread.[23] However on 18 October, the team halted shoot after its key technician was diagnosed with COVID-19.[24] As only 75% of the shooting is under completion, before lockdown, the makers continued the shoot. The film entered its final schedule on 5 December 2020,[25] and also entered its post-production stage, with Nani started dubbing for his portions on January 2021.[26]
