Nani has always been the go-to choice for any first-time filmmaker or a storyteller on the rise in the recent years. He not only respects their scripts, creative choices, but also handholds them during the making, while not interfering with their style. He’s generally the first actor from the fraternity to praise any quality film after release and has earned the respect of viewers and industry insiders for his gestures.
In response to a follower’s question - ‘Who is an upcoming director you want to work with?’ - Nani surprised many when he talked of his interest in collaborating with Balagam filmmaker Venu Yeldandi. While interacting with the media today, the actor stated that he was astonished to know that Venu, someone he has known for many years, was so skilled with his storytelling capabilities.
“How can we ignore such a talent? He has been in the industry for a long time and I was surprised that he had such depth in his writing and a moving story to tell. Producer Dil Raju has told me Venu is preparing a script for me and I can’t wait to listen to it. As of now, we have not committed to any project,” the ‘Natural star’ shared. The surprise hit Balagam can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.
