Among the ‘Big 4’ of Tollywood ie Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, Nagarjuna and Venkatesh, it is only Nag who has the credit of acting in maximum biopics. He gave a closer to reality look of Annamayya, Ramadasu, Shirdi Sai to the Telugu audience through his convincing performances.
On one angle they were devotional films and other angle they were biopics. Given that impact, whenever any biopic is being planned in filmnagar, Nag is remembered. Now, a talk is on in film chamber about making a biopic on Komaram Bheem. They say that taking the subject of Komaram Bheem is apt given the timing and environment in both Telugu states.
Those who are in Telangana movement have an idea but Komaram Bheem’s real story and background. But many in both states don’t know. ‘Annamayya’s story was not known to all till Nag did the movie. ‘Ramadasu’s story was known to a few but this generation got more insight after Nag did the film. So, the discussion was on as to who will do Komaram Bheem’s role and Nag’s name popped up. The film Rajanna was made with period backdrop of Telangana and Nag performed very well but Komaram Bheem will be more powerful subject. We have to see how Nag reacts to this proposal.
