Dr.Brahmanandam is no less than a superstar in popularity and in stardom. Most of the Telugu audience check out whether Brahmanandam stars in a movie, before they go to watch it. 

In fact, you hardly find any Telugu movie that does not have his presence. After winning several awards, honorary doctorates, and setting Guinness records, the star comedian now takes up the megaphone. 

Brahmi, as he is fondly called, has already begun his maiden directorial venture and has completed its first schedule. Playing himself in the lead role along with several other comedians and actors, Brahmi is directing the script penned by `Vennela` Kishore. And interestingly, the movie is titled - Jaffa. Yes, you read it right, it is `Jaffa`. 

Though Brahmi is keeping the film`s details under wraps, we came to know that he`s also planning to rope in a top actress to play a guest role. He wants to announce the movie to the media once he completes the talkie portion of the film. 

`Orrey Jaffa` is an oft-used phrase by Brahmi in his films. The word has no specific meaning in Telugu language but it is now being used by general public in their daily lives to describe an idiot, thanks to the constant usage of the word by this comedian.
