Saif Ali Khan joins the cast of NTR 30 to play the villain in his Telugu film debut
Saif Ali Khan has arrived on the Jr. NTR and Janhvi Kapoor movie set. In his first Telugu movie, he will play the main antagonist.
Saif Ali Khan’s Telugu Debut
In an upcoming film yet to be named and directed by Koratala Siva, actor Saif Ali Khan will make his Telugu debut alongside Jr. NTR.
Saif arrived on set on Tuesday to begin filming for the project.
He will appear in the movie as the main antagonist. Social media has been inundated with images from the sets.
Jr NTR and Director Koratala
After the success of Janatha Garage, Jr. NTR and Koratala Siva are reuniting for the movie NTR 30.
Mega launch of the movie
A few weeks ago, the work officially started with a pooja. Prashanth Neel, the director of KGF, was one of the event’s other notable guests, in addition to SS Rajamouli.
Social media users shared videos and images of the inauguration event. Jr. NTR was seen acknowledging Janhvi at the event in one of the clips. She was spotted donning a pale green sari.
In another video, Jr. NTR and Janhvi were seen interacting with Rajamouli on the podium as he shouted for the initial shot and announced the start of the shooting.
Intriguingly, Janhvi Kapoor is also making her Telugu debut with this project.

Progress in the movie
The project began months after it was first announced last year.
Fans have demanded updates from the team ever since the project was formally announced. Jr. NTR asked fans to refrain from continually asking for updates because it puts a lot of pressure on many people.
“It is nearly impossible to update the movie every day or every hour. Even though I completely understand your enthusiasm and urge, there can occasionally be too much pressure placed on both the producer and the director as a result of this. Due to pressure, we occasionally share an update that isn’t very valuable, upsetting the fans even more,” he said.
NTR went on to say that many actors are under similar pressure, which is unhealthy.
