As part of a promotional campaign ahead of the trailer launch of Ghost, Shivarajkumar has been doing a 100-hour social media campaign and answering queries
On September 28 at 8 pm, Century Star Shivarajkumar kicked off a 100-hour social media campaign that will wind up on October 1, right before the trailer of his next, Ghost, is unveiled. As part of the campaign, Shivarajkumar would respond to interesting queries posed to him on X, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #AskNimmaShivanna. In the time since, the Hattrick Hero has responded to a bunch of questions, most of which, interestingly were about various Telugu heroes.
To a question about how he feels when Jr NTR speaks in Kannada, Shivanna said, “To speak Kannada you need a big heart and my brother @tarak9999 has the biggest heart. He not just speaks the language he even sang a song. My entire family loves him and will always wish him the best.” When asked about Mahesh Babu, the actor said, “He’s a man of few words. Extremely dignified, and professional in his approach. It’s a pleasure to see such soft spoken person explode on screen with electrifying performances.”
As for his Vajrakaya co-star Ravi Teja, Shivanna added that while working with him was an absolute blast, the actor is a ball of energy on and off screen. “I’m sure his energy is a booster to all his fans,” wrote the Century Star. To a question about Ram Charan and Shivanna’s favourite film of the RRR star, the latter said that he loved Magadheera. “He’s an absolute gem of a person. An actor beyond excellence, fans across the world and yet exhibits so much humility. He’s performed brilliantly in RRR but my personal favourite is Maghadheera.”
Talking about his close bond with Pawan Kalyan, Shivarajkumar shared a picture of the duo and wrote, “He’s a dear friend. Somebody who is as energetic as me.” The most interesting bit of the #AskNimmaShivanna was when the actor said that he’d predicted that Allu Arjun would get national recognition for his work on Pushpa. “When I watched #Pushpa I had spoken to @alluarjun garu that this time National Award guarantee. So happy that his performance won the audiences and the awards.”
Shivarajkumar's action heist thriller Ghost, directed by MG Srinivas, which also stars Anupam Kher and Jayaram, will be in theatres on October 19 for Dasara.
