Nagarjuna Akkineni celebrating his 58th birthday tomorrow. He interacted with the media on this occasion and spoke about his upcoming film Raju Gari Gadhi 2, his son’s wedding and younger son Akhil’s second film Hello…
What is Raju Gari Gadhi 2 all about?
Except for some patchwork, the film is almost complete. Presently the sound mixing of the film is going on. The first copy of the film should be ready by September 2nd week. I am glad that the film has come out well. It is a horror comedy film, a type of film that I have not tried earlier.
What is your role in the movie?
I am a mentalist in the movie. My character can guess what exactly goes on in the human mind. I have the power to guess what the other person is thinking in this movie.
How was it working with director Omhkar?
He is a very dedicated person and knows his job well. The clarity he has on film making is amazing. I enjoyed working with him.
You are producing Hello, is there any pressure?
Yes lots of it. But there is love as well, which will dominate over the pressure. I need to be involved in this project as it is made on big budget. The film is shaping up well.
Why is Akhil’s movie getting delayed?
The film is a fresh love story. A new face was required for the leading lady. This was the main reason for the delay.
Will there be a sequel to Soggade Chinni Nayana?
I do not want a sequel to Soggade Chinni Nayana. Director Kalyan Krishna did narrate a storyline of Bangarraju. I was not impressed with it. If we get a good story we will definitely make a film on Bangarraju.
Tell us about Samantha and Chaitanya's marriage?
It will be a private family affair. I am not involved much in it. I will be a guest, but they have asked me to give the cheque (laughs). I will be throwing a reception and it will be my call totally.
