‘The intention was to sustain the love’

At the press meet, Siddhu was asked if the intention while making Tillu Square was to make a better film than DJ Tillu. He said, “The intention wasn’t to make a better film. When a character receives such love, we wanted to make a film that sustains it. Sequels rarely work, so I knew Tillu Square would work as a film, but wasn’t sure it would as a sequel.”

Talking further about the character, Siddhu said, “I think Tillu is like a ticking time bomb, he has a lot of scope to be funny depending on the situations he’s in.” Producer Naga Vamsi confirmed in the same press meet that the franchise will have a third part. “We will be making Tillu 3, right now it isn’t announced at the end of Tillu Square. We’ll insert an official announcement from Monday.”

About Tillu Square

While DJ Tillu was directed by Vimal Krishna, the sequel was directed by Mallik. The film saw Siddhu reprise his role as the titular Tillu while Anupama played his love interest, Lilly. Much like the first part in the franchise, Tillu finds himself in trouble due to whom he falls in love with, but the stakes are much higher this time around.

DJ Tillu saw Neha Sshetty play Radhika, a woman who murders her boyfriend and cons Tillu into helping her bury him. The film also saw Prince Cecil play a nightclub owner and gangster called Shannon.

Upcoming work

Siddhu also served as a writer for both DJ Tillu and Tillu Square. He has given his nod to star in a spy thriller called Jack, directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar. He will also star in stylist-turned-director Neeraja Kona’s debut directorial, Telusu Kada.
