There can be no denying that veteran actor Nagarjuna is going through a great phase in life these days. In October, his son/noted actor Naga Chaitanya got married to his longtime friend Samantha Ruth Prabhu and gave the Akkinenis a reason to rejoice. The lovebirds tied the knot as per Hindu traditions on October 6 in what was an unforgettable ceremony. Thereafter, the two got married as per Christian traditions and gave fans a reason to rejoice. Shortly after the Chai-Sam wedding, Nags tasted professional success when ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’ became a hit at the box office and got the thumbs up from fans. In the horror-comedy, he was seen alongside Sam and delivered a solid performance. Talking about working with his DIL, he had said they discussed the wedding a lot during the shoot.
“She played a ghost. I played a kind of exorcist (laughs). Such equations can only be conceived in our films. We would constantly be discussing the wedding details while shooting. I am so glad to have Sam as part of our family. But what is more important is that they (son and daughter-in-law) are happy. I want nothing more than to see my children happy,” he had told a leading news agency.
At present, he is gearing up for the release of his latest production venture ‘Hello’. The film is an action-thriller and features his younger son Akhil in the lead. It has created quite a buzz amongst fans courtesy its teaser and is set to hit screens on December 22. Now, it seems that the buzz surrounding ‘Hello’ is set to receive a shot in the arm. According to the latest reports, it is going to feature a solid climax sequence that will feature plenty of action sequences. The last 30 minutes in particular will be quite adrenaline pumping and boast of onscreen daredevilry. Moreover, it seems that ‘Hello’ revolves around an incident that takes place during the course of 1 day.
Well, we wish Akhil good luck and hope that ‘Hello’ does well at the box office. In case you did not know, Akhil entered T-town in 2015 with the much-hyped ‘Akhil’. Sadly, it did not do well at the box office and failed to impress critics.
Sometime ago, while talking about the film’s failure, he had said that he should have debuted with a home production. He had also said that he feels confident about ‘Hello’ as Nagarjuna is involved with its production.
“My Dad has been on board for the entire project. He has produced Hello and made sure that everything is just right this time. In hindsight, I feel I should have started my career with a home production. When I have the greatest guide and mentor at home, why not avail his wisdom?,” he had added.
As it so happens,’Hello’ releases the day after Nani starrer ‘MCA’. And, as expected, this clash has created a buzz in trade circles. However, ‘King’ is confident that both films will do well.
“Five films are releasing this Sankranti. Nani is a popular star and its holiday time. But there are many theatres to accommodate these films and it won’t be a problem,” he had added.
On a related note, once ‘Hello’ arrives in cinema halls, Nags will resume the shoot of his film with RGV. It is an action-drama and features him in the role of a cop.
While announcinfg the film. RGV had said that the film is going to be pretty different from anything he has done in the past.
“I am extremely excited that I am doing a film with Nagarjuna after nearly 25 years but contrary to some uninformed media speculations, this new film is nothing to do with ‘Shiva’, neither in character nor in story content. It’s a very different but an extremely realistic action film set against a story such as neither me nor Nagarjuna has ever done before,” he had written on FB.
So, will ‘Hello’ help Akhil bounce back? Comments, please!
