Probably Nagarjuna is the only hero in Tollywood to do devotional flicks without any second thought. After Annamayya, Sri Ramadasu, Shirdi Sai, Nagarjuna - Raghavendra Rao's combo is back with another devotional subject Om Namo Venkatesaya. The film is releasing on 10th of this month and Nagarjuna is here to promote his film. Read and Enjoy...
Tell us how different Om Namo Venkatesaya will be different from Annamayya
They are two completely different stories of two different great devotees. Hathiram Baba was from North. We tried to showcase his life. It is very emotional character. Episodes between Lord Venkateswara and Hathiram will be interesting and entertaining.
Something about Anushka and Pragya Jaiswal's character
Pragya plays my cousin who loves Hathiram Baba. It is same as in history. Anushka plays the role of Krishnamma who devotes her life to Lord Venkateswara. It is very important character.
What is your feeling when KRR put this story before you
I first thought of not doing the movie as Annamayya was done in similar backdrop. But Raghavendra Rao insisted me to hear the script. After hearing I immediately signed the project.
What do you think are the main highlights in this flick
There are mainly four blocks in the story which will stand as highlights. Especially last 10 minutes will touch your heart.
Is there any special reason behind selecting Saurabh Jain for God role
As per the story, artist needs to be younger. We thought there are no suitable young artists to play this character so we approached Saurabh.
What is your gut feeling on this movie
I strongly believe that this film will be well received not only by families but also by youth.
Tell us about your upcoming projects..
I will shortly join shoot of Raju Gari Gadhi 2 for my portion. After this movie, Bangarraju prequel might happen.
That concludes Nagarjuna's interview...
