Nagarjuna & Naga Chaitanya on Akkineni Nageshwar Rao’s death, living upto his legacy | Bangarraju
Nagarjuna Garu and Naga Chaitanya joins us for a special chat on Bollywood Bubble today, all the way from Hyderabad, where they were busy promoting their recently released film Bangarraju. While Nag sir is a pan-India superstar, Chay is loved by many for his interesting choices in films and his calm demeanour. In this candid chat, the father-son duo open up on the slowly blurring lines in cinema, the North-South divide and why they take immense pride to be referred as ‘South Indian actors’. Not just that, they discuss their first films, why they thought they weren’t as good in their first film and shooting with family. While this film has Chaitanya playing Nagarjuna Garu’s son and grandson, they also did a film called Manam (Us) which had the legendary Akkineni Nageshwar Rao Garu along with them. At a particular point, Nag sir gets emotional about the news of ANR Garu’s cancer, how the family coped up with the news and his subsequent death and why they put an extra pressure on themselves to make sure his legacy lives on. They also reveal their flirtatious side and talk about releasing their film at a time many of them are getting pushed. Watch the film right now.
