It’s always a pleasure to catch up with Telugu superstar Nagarjuna .He has just returned to Hyderabad after completing a Hindi film Brahmastra with producer Karan Johar and director Ayan Mukerjee, and has commenced work on a new Telugu film.
About shooting for Brahmastra, Nagarjuna says, “It was my first Hindi film in 17 years, I was welcomed in Mumbai like I was never gone.In Mumbai( Bollywood) they’re always good to me. I was treated like a king by Karan Johar and his team.”
Nag is full of praise for his co-stars Ranbir and Alia. “They are so hard-working so disciplined, so focused in their work. At that age I was not like that . Alia , I remember as a baby when she visited the sets of her father Mahesh Bhatt’s Zakham here I was the hero. She is still a baby,actually.”
As for Amitabh Bachchan who also has a key role in Brahmastra Nag barely got a chance to meet him. “I was looking forward to meeting him. We had last worked together in Khuda Gawah. But in Brahamastra we don’t have any scenes together. As you know, each of the main actors has his or her own segment in the film. Mine didn’t overlap with his.”
So how much of Nag will we see in Brahmastra? “I can’t tell you much about my role. But I can tell you this. My fans won’t be disappointed. It is a very strong character that leaves a very strong impact.”
