At 63, Nagarjuna keeps the Akkineni family flag flying high

0

At 63, he’s one of the most durable stars of Telugu filmdom. When most people have hung up their boots, Akkineni Nagarjuna continues to give actors half his age, a run for their money.

A scion of the Akkineni family, Nagarjuna has built up on the position and goodwill that his father, the late thespian Nageswara Rao had acquired in his lifetime.

Born on August 29, 1959, in Chennai, Nagarjuna has literally been an actor all his life. He was first seen on screen as an eight-month-old toddler in his father’s movie, ‘Velugu Needalu’.

He first featured as a child artiste in ‘Sudigundalu’ in 1967. And then, after a stint abroad for studies in Michigan, USA, Nagarjuna returned home to embark on a career in movies.

His debut movie, ‘Vikram’ a Telugu remake of Subhash Ghai’s ‘Hero’ released in 1986 was recieved well by the masses as well as critics. But it was with ‘Shiva’ that Nagarjuna really came into his own. The directorial debut of Ram Gopal Varma which remains a benchmark to this day, made several careers in Tollywood.

In fact, throughout his career, Nagarjuna has been known to give a break to many an actor and director. ‘Bahubali’ lead actor Anushka Shetty also happens to be one of Nagarjuna’s discoveries. Nagarjuna has said that working with new talents allows him to explore the limits of his own abilities apart from preventing monotony to set in.

Industry observers attribute Nagarjuna’s success to his willingness to experiment with diverse characters.

From lover boy roles movies like ‘Criminal’, and ‘Manmathudu’, to family man in ‘Aavidaa maa aavide’, tough gangster in ‘Devadasu’, devotee in ‘Annamayya’, and tough law man in ‘Wild Dog’, and his upcoming project ‘The Ghost’, Nagarjuna has walked the talk with elan.

While South actors are getting noticed in Bollywood only recently, it was Nagarjuna who made a splash long ago with Hindi movies. His Bollywood debut was with the Hindi remake of ‘Siva’. Later he also acted in ‘Criminal and Khuda Gawah, starring Amitabh Bachchan and late Sridevi.

He is among the few actors in Tollywood to play lead roles from the era of giants like late NTR, his father late ANR, Krishna, and Krishnam Raju. Even as his own sons, Naga Chaitanya, and Akhil are making a place for themselves as lead actors in Tollywood, Nagarjuna continues to flourish as a lead actor himself.

Nagarjuna’s The Ghost On Shiva’s Date

0

Shiva is one of the most memorable classics in Nagarjuna’s career. The film indeed was a path-breaker in Tollywood. Coming to the actual point, Shiva’s date is chosen for the theatrical release of Nagarjuna’s upcoming movie The Ghost.

The Ghost will be arriving in cinemas on October 5th. On the same day, Shiva had its theatrical release on 1989. Curiously, both the movies are action entertainers. The announcement was made through The Ghost Killing Machine.

It’s actually a stunt sequence and Nagarjuna looks intense as he takes on the criminals. It’s a very well choreographed action sequence, we must say. It’s also evident through this video that The Ghost will have some breath-taking stunt sequences.

Praveen Sattaru is directing the movie that is in last phase of shooting. Sree Venkateshwara Cinemas and Northstar Entertainment together are producing the movie.

0

The makers of Nagarjuna’s next film ‘The Ghost’ vow to release a spine-chilling first trailer soon. The ‘FIRST VISUAL,’ which will be released on July 9, is likely to heighten the excitement surrounding Praveen Sattaru’s directorial debut.

‘The Ghost’ producers revealed the release date of the first episode of the action-packed suspense drama on their social media accounts. They also released a poster of Nagarjuna.

The image, which depicts Nagarjuna holding a weapon, was labeled “Unleashing The Killing Machine.” The poster’s background appears to be a fort or a massive European structure, with the blood moon in the backdrop.

Gearing up for its release soon. ‘The Ghost’ completed its entire shooting part, except for an action sequence. This action block will be canned soon and with that, it will be a wrap for the production part.

In this high-octane action entertainer, Nagarjuna plays an Interpol officer for the first time. With ‘The Ghost’, Praveen Sattaru is on a mission to provide the audience with a never-before-seen experience.

Sonal Chauhan is the female lead opposite Nagarjuna in the movie that also stars Gul Panag and Anikha Surendran in important roles.

Suniel Narang, along with Puskur Ram Mohan Rao, and Sharrath Marar is producing the film on Sree Venkateshwara Cinemas LLP and Northstar Entertainment Banners.

Makers of Nagarjuna-starrer ‘Ghost’ to go for direct OTT release

1

The forthcoming film ‘Ghost,’ starring Nagarjuna Akkineni, is expected to be released exclusively on the OTT platform. Directed by Praveen Sattaru, it is being sold to an OTT partner, and the producers intend to release it directly on the digital platform rather than go for a theatrical release.

It is also reported that the business for ‘Ghost’ has not been disclosed yet, as the makers are still looking to set a higher price to launch the movie on OTT. Lack of publicity, and hype around the movie are also considered the factors behind the maker’s decision to release the movie on OTT rather than in the theatres.

‘Ghost’ stars Kajal Agarwal and Sonal Chauhan as the female leads. Apart from an official poster, and some BTS pictures from the movie, the makers have kept everything else under wraps for now.

It’s an action-packed movie for which ‘Garuda Vega’ fame Praveen Sattaru has done the scripting as well as direction. The picture was scheduled to be released in theatres at the end of this year, but if it shifts to OTT, we might see it much sooner.

Hindi TV premiere of ‘Bangarraju’, starring Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya, on July 6

0

The Hindi premiere of Telugu blockbuster movie ‘Bangarraju’ is slated for July 6, on Zee Cinema. The movie, directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala, was released earlier during the Sankranti season in Telugu, creating much buzz at the theatres.

Now that the father-son — Naga Chaitanya and Nagarjuna — starrer is gearing up for its Hindi premieres, the duo has expressed their excitement.

Nagarjuna said that the fantasy-themed movie Bangarraju turned out to be a great hit, as it has all the aspects of entertainment in it.

“The audience determines whether a film succeeds or fails. Bangarraju is a movie made with the general public in mind. Women, children, and elders will find it enjoyable,” Nagarjuna said.

Nagarjuna went on to explain that “The idea of a regular person suddenly becoming a superhero in movies like Spiderman and Superman has always captivated me, and with our movie, we’re bringing that idea to the general public. It’s a fantasy-themed family entertainment with some incredibly astonishing components.”

The Manmadhudu actor also said that “Witnessing your child excel in their career makes you happy every time. Since Chaitanya has always been meticulous, I’ll admit I’m a little envious of his success in landing that position.”

Naga Chaitanya, on the other hand, expressed his happiness over the Hindi release of Bangarraju, “The hero of today’s movies is content, and we are finding our places in that. I’ve never played a part like the one I have in Bangarraju, so it was difficult at first, but I got used to it. ”

The Majili actor explained further: “You’ll appreciate viewing this movie with your family. It was enjoyable to play a game in a paranormal setting, and it was much more enjoyable to do it with my father. We have previously collaborated, therefore we are familiar with each other’s workspace.”

Nagarjuna’s ‘partiality’ in new promo gets fans talking

0

In one of the recent episodes of ‘Bigg Boss Telugu 5’, Actress Priya had an outburst on VJ Sunny, as he tried to defend his game.

This brought so much negativity to her, and the audience was convinced that the host Nagarjuna would school her for her bad behaviour at the Bigg Boss house.

The latest promo released features Nagarjuna hosting Saturday’s episode.

The promo hints at the host’s partial judgment, as he makes fun of VJ Sunny, instead of schooling actress Priya for her rude behaviour. Well, Nagarjuna is known for his seriousness when the housemates treat others in that tone, but this time, he fails to do so with Priya.

The viewers who got a hint at the episode, are upset, thinking that the host is taking Priya’s side by not addressing the real issue.

“Priya literally provoked Sunny all the while last week. As expected, women can yell at men. But, this host is okay if women foul-mouth about men”, one of the replies on Twitter reads.

“Sunny had undergone so much harassment. But, Nagarjuna is making fun of him without even being serious”, another tweet reads.

Actress Priya had yelled at Sunny, and warned him that she would break his mouth multiple times during the task. Nagarjuna, sliding off this matter is not well appreciated by the audience.
