About DJ Tillu Movie
- Vimal Krishna narrated the storyline of the film to actor Jonnalagadda in 2019, but got delayed in further production due to COVID-19 pandemic in India.
- The film was announced in October 2020 under the title Narudi Brathuku Natana. Director Trivikram Srinivas also guided Krishna and the team in designing the story and screenplay of the film.
- In January 2021, the film was then officially launched under the same title.
- The film’s title was then changed to DJ Tillu in an uncited reason. About his character ‘Tillu’ in the film, Jonnalagadda told The Hindu that “I grew up in areas near Padmarao Nagar (in Hyderabad). Youngsters in Warasiguda and Chilkalguda talk like Tillu (the Hyderabadi Telangana dialect). We wanted Tillu to reflect on how these youngsters speak and how they handle things. Each one is his own boss and for no reason, there is the rivalry between gangs from each street. These boys are also more chilled out than those in, say, Banjara Hills.”
- Principal photography for the film began in February 2021 but was then later stopped due to the second lockdown in India. Filming was then resumed in June 2021.
- The film was initially scheduled to release on 14 January 2022 coinciding with the festival of Sankranthi due to the postponement of films such as RRR and Radhe Shyam. However, due to the restrictions on cinemas due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India the film was postponed. It was later decided that the film was going to be released on 11 February 2022 along with Khiladi. In order to avoid the clash with Khiladi, DJ Tillu was then postponed to 12 February 2022. The film’s theatrical distribution rights were sold for ₹8 crore.
- The satellite and digital rights were acquired by Star Maa and Aha. It was premiered in Aha on 4 March 2022.
- A sequel titled Tillu Square is scheduled to be released on 15 September 2023 with Jonnalagadda reprising his role.
