Nagarjuna: “Wild Dog Belongs On The Big Screen”



In spite  of   the Covid upsurge, Nagarjuna’s new action adventure  Wild Dog has opened  to encouraging response.

Says Nag, “We always knew it  wouldn’t be an opening like normal times. But we were  adamant  on releasing in theatres. Wild Dog belongs  on the  big screen.”

There was  talk of  Wild Dog directed  by  Ashishor Solomon  being released on the  OTT platform.

Nag was totally opposed  to a digital  release. “No no, didn’t want  to release Wild Dog  on OTT. The audience in the South doesn’t like it when their favourite actors  release  their films on  the digital platform. And now with films  like Master and Krack doing so well, I think it’s time to return to  the big-screen experience. Look at Uppena. It  has two newcomers in the lead and it is rocking the  boxoffice.”

What was the lockdown  year 2020 like for Nag? “While I was  at home I realized  how much I love my work. I want to do  as many films as I can without compromising on  quality. Having said that, I confess I enjoyed the time off. This is  the  first time that I got to spend so much time with my family, my wife Amala my two sons Naga Chaitanya and Akhil and  my daughter-in-law Samantha who  is  an integral part of the family. It was like  a  full family film for a whole year.So no family films for me  for some time now, please.”
