Sunil had recommended Nani as an assistant director for ‘Dhee’ that had Sunil in an important role and was directed by Srinu Vytla.

It was him who recommended me for it. Even later, I would feel awkward to interact with any of the stars and feel intimidated. I had just joined so I never knew if I could even talk to them. By then, Sunil was a well-known name in the industry and he helped me, a clap assistant, by giving me confidence to talk to the star actors without any hesitation,” Nani was quoted as saying by TOI. Nani is friends with everyone in the film industry and maintains cordial relationship. Although they have known each other for a long time, Nani and Sunil haven’t acted in a film together, a combination which Telugu movie-buffs would really enjoy.

Usually at events like these, there are a lot of audience. But today, there are numerous guests here too. Seeing this, one should understand how many friends Sunil and Shankar have in the industry,” Nani further added. ‘2 Countries’, a remake, is being directed by N.Shankar with Sunil in the lead who is badly in need of a hit. With this remake, he will look to get back in the scheme of things.

Bhumika Chawla seems to be playing Nani’s ‘vadina’ (sister-in-law) while Rajiv Kanakala is seen playing Nani’s elder brother. Sai Pallavi seems to be playing a happy-go-lucky girl in the film who proposes Nani to get married right at the first sight of him. Bollywood hit flick ‘Pink’ actor Vijay Varma will be seen playing the corrival in MCA marking his debut in Telugu cinema.

The title of the film itself has created a delirium sorts of thing around the film and fans of actor Nani are quite excited about it. Nani plays the ‘Middle Class Abbayi’ in the film while Sai Pallavi plays his love interest, which is obvious in most of the commercial potboilers these days.

Very happy that Bhumika is playing a pivotal role in this film. We are confident that MCA will complete our hattrick list in 2017.”

The music of MCA is composed by Devi Sri Prasad who is currently going through a rocking phase in his career. With back-to-back hits in his kitty, DSP seems to be the synonym of music for commercial potboilers in South Indian cinema.
