Akkineni Nagarjuna with the sole idea of turning his two sons to superstars has asked Tarun Bhasker to pen a good script for them.
Telugu cinema veteran Akkineni Nagarjuna is seriously planning to get his sons, Naga Chaitanya and Akhil Akkineni Nagarjuna, the much-needed breaks and help them to choose good scripts and filmmakers.
Following the huge success of Pelli Choopulu, actor-turned-producer Akkineni has asked Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam to write a suitable script for his son Naga Chaitanya.
Akkineni is making blockbusters like Soggade Chinni Nayana and Oopiri at the age of 57, but his sons Naga and Akhil Akkineni are struggling to get big breaks.
The boss of Annapurna Studios recently watched Tharun Bhascker’s Pelli Choopulu, which was released in theatres around the world on July 29. Akkineni was impressed with his direction and scripting in the movie and he requested the director to prepare a suitable script for his two sons.
Nagarjuna confirmed the news about making a proposal to director Tharun Bhascker. “I liked the film and have asked Tarun Bhascker to come up with a subject that suits Naga, Akhil or even me. I will produce it,” the actor told a paper.
Nagarjuna is a Telugu actor, who is constantly making experiments with his roles and stories of his films. He has gained success in his attempt with his recent releases turning super-hits at the box office.
“The film Manam is a big turning point in my career and it opened my mind to experimentation. That’s how I did Oopiri and now, Om Namo Venkatesaya,” he said, when asked about his experiments.
Pelli Choopulu is a romantic-comedy, which reminds us to live meaningfully. With its story striking a chord with audience, this small-budget film has become a blockbuster hit at the box office. Post-this-success, Tharun Bhascker has been flooded with several offers, but he is yet to announce his next project. It should be seen whether he will come up with suitable script for Nagarjuna. – CINEWS
