Siddharth's next film Bava, to be directed by Rambabu and produced by L. Padmakumar Chowdary under the banner of Sri Keerthi Creations, was launched at Annapoorna Studios, Hyderabad. V.V. Vinayak clapped the muhurat shot, while Seenu Vytla switched on the camera. The first shot was directed by Kodi Ramakrishna.
Director Rambabu said: "It is the story of bava maradalu (brother-in-law and sister-in-law). A popular hero is going to play the role of Siddharth’s father. I would like to thank producer Chowdary and hero Siddharth for giving me the opportunity as director."
Siddharth said, “2010 is an unforgettable year in my life. My Hindi film as solo hero Striker is releasing this year. I am also acting under the banner of K. Raghavendra Rao. Bava is a simple love story. I know director Rambabu for the past four years. He came up with an interesting script. I feel happy to work with producer Chowdary. Chakri introduced me as a singer with 'Chukkallo Chandrudu'. I prefer to work with new directors because they possess tremendous energy."
Music director Chakri and M.L. Kumar Chowdary spoke during the occasion. Bava has Ali, Brahmanandam, Nazar, Surekha Vani and others in the cast. Chintapally Ramana pens dialogues. Arvind Krishna handles cinematography.
