Closer to the 100 films landmark: Nagarjuna
Style icon Nagarjuna is one actor who doesn't shy away from experimenting and trying out new roles in his films. But after playing different characters in films like Shiridi Sai, Dhamarukam and Greekuveerudu, the actor seems to be back to the entertainment formula for his 95th film, Bhai. "Yes, the film is a complete action packed entertainer," shares Nagarjuna, adding that like the title suggests, the film is about 'sister sentiment' and also has a mafia backdrop. "You will get to see a lot of punch lines and humour in the film," he adds. Richa Gangopadhyay is playing the female lead opposite Nag in the film.
When quizzed as to why he was back to the regular masala formula, he says, "If you check the top actors of Hollywood or Bollywood, they all stick to entertainment-based films. Entertainment is now a worldwide phenomenon, since even action films contain the same formula as that of a commercial movie."
With this film, Nagarjuna is one step closer to his 100 films landmark. "This is my 95th film. I just got to know about this, and like a century is a landmark in any field, it is a special number in films too. I want my 100th film to be a memorable one," signs off Nagarjuna.
