Nani, Mrunal Thakur and Baby Kiara played the lead roles in Hi Nanna
Hi Nanna is off to a great start at the box office. After winning critical acclaim from the first day, the collections have skyrocketed over the weekend and the mixed responses to Nithiin’s Extra Ordinary Man have given it an additional edge. The relationship drama is Nani’s ninth $1 million grosser in the US - the film has collected over Rs 40 crore in its four day-long first weekend.
While several filmmakers, actors have praised Hi Nanna, the film has found a new fan in Pushpa 2 star Allu Arjun today, who shared a heartwarming note over a social media post. Congratulating the team of Hi Nanna, he called it a ‘sweet, warm film’ and said it was ‘truly heart touching.’ He appreciated Nani’s ‘effortless performance’ lauding him for backing such a ‘captivating script.’
Mrunal Thakur’s ‘beautiful’ performance haunts you on the screen, the star added. He named Baby Kiara a ‘darling’ and stated that she’s melting many hearts with her ‘cuteness.’ On a light-hearted note, he mentioned it’s high time that she returns to school. Among the technicians, he was in awe of Sanu John Varughese’s cinematography and composer Hesham Abdul Wahab’s album.
Allu Arjun praised Shouryuv for his commendable debut for his wonderful presentation and for ‘creating many heart touching and tear jerking moments’ and congratulated the producers for bringing a sweet film to audiences. “#HiNanna will touch every family members hearts not just fathers.” The star, in the previous week, also expressed his admiration for Sandeep Reddy’s Vanga.
