Comedy king Rajendra Prasad- fondly called as Nata Kireeti needs no introduction in Telugu Film arena. He has given some most memorable comedy classics in 80s-90s era which can be cherished forever by Telugu speaking audience. His mere histrionics and comedy timing has made him invincible comedy hero. This doesn't mean he cannot excel in serious roles as he always shocked the audiences with emotional performances in movies like Erra Mandaram, the recent Aa Naluguru and Mee Sreyobhilashi.
Rajendra Prasad has been instrumental in the success of Allu Arjun's Julayi which was directed by Maatala Mantrikudu Trivikram Srinivas. His fantastic comedy timing was evolved for modern viewers and he got the perfect blend of yesteryear emotional histrionics to the new age underplaying. This has perhaps made him the new age favorite of Telugu Cinema one again in character oriented roles. Apart from doing thought provoking full time films, Rajendra Prasad has been constantly acting as a character actor in many good films including recent S/O Sathyamurthy as well.
Prakash Raj on the other hand is an actor with monumental potential and has been ruling the character actor arena in Telugu Cinema since nearly two decades. He has become an ideal father image for Telugu Cinema- to be said in short! Naturally, Sukumar has initially chosen Prakash Raj in a father role for his next film Nannaku Prematho starring Young Tiger Jr.NTR. But as per our sources, Rajendra Prasad has taken over this now!
Rajendra Prasad is known for giving fantastic performances as an ideal Telugu father with nativity and his combination with supremely talented Jr.NTR and Sukumar would surely rock on screen!
