After a playing a tough cop in Ram Gopal Varma’s Officer, Nagarjuna will play a gangster in his next film. Directed by Sriram Adittya, the film is a light-hearted comedy, which also features Nani. In a recent interview, Nagarjuna said that this film is in the ‘Rajkumar Hirani territory’ and is a warm-hearted film.
“I’ve never in my career felt threatened by the presence of any other actor. Earlier, I was mostly doing solo hero films in Telugu because that was what was offered to me. Recently these two-hero projects have come which I enjoy doing. I enjoyed working with Karthi in Oopiri. I am sure working with Nani will be a lot of fun,” he said.
Nagarjuna has also been approached for an important role in Marakkar: Arabikkadalinte Simham. However, he has not committed to it yet. “I was approached but I need to hear the script before I say ‘yes’. I will be hearing it in June end. At the moment, I am only doing the film with Nani.”
The project is expected to go on the floors soon.
