Nag's New Devotional FilmMar 24, 2016 09:06 AM IST
Fresh from the grand success of his Sankranthi release Soggade Chinni Nayana, Nagarjuna is already gearing up for his next film, a devotional film tentatively titled Om Namo Venkatesaya on Lord Vishnu in K Raghavendra Rao's direction. The film will begin in February.
Incidentally, this is the 10th time that Nag and KRR will be joining hands for a film. Earlier, the super hit combo together gave commercial potboilers like Janaki Ramudu, Akhari Poratam and Gharana Bullodu etc. However, the duo changed its tracks and gave a string of devotional classics like Annamayya, Sri Ramadasu and Shirdi Sai etc.
Ever since he reinvented himself with Manam, Nag has been totally experimenting with his films and his roles, which are completely different from one another. Unlike many other stars who are still stuck into monotonous hero roles, this is indeed a blessing for Nag as he has reached a stage in his career that he has nothing to worry about his stardom.
At this age and after immense experience, Nag's smartness in his story selection and penchant for trying out new genres is indeed praiseworthy.
As, K Raghavendra Rao was appointed for TTD Board member recently. Even Nagarjuna attended the oath-taking ceremony of KRR at Tirumala. So, There is huge curiosity about the next devotional flick in their combo. 'Om Namo Venkatesa' will be officially launched after Nag wraps up the shoot of Multi-Starrer 'Oopiri' with Karthi.
