Throughout your experience as a movie watcher, the number of cult movies you can count is barely on your fingers. One such film is ‘Shiva’ which redefined the era of Telugu cinema and till today, each and every character is remembered in the strongest way.

One such character is that of Nanaji which was essayed by the multi-talented Tanikella Bharani. While he delivered it to perfection the truth is that he was not the original choice for the role. Apparently, this role first went to acting guru Deekshit.

He was seen as priest in films like Murari and Athadu and he is also responsible for setting up Annapurna Institute of Film Academy. So, Deekshit master was the first choice but for some reason when he missed it, the role went to Bharani and he became immortal.
