There are many members in the Telugu Film Fraternity but among them only a handful are always praised for their intelligence and shrewd business calculation towards the business of cinema. King Akkineni Nagarjuna is among the top list and there have been instances when he ensured films are reshot which fetched profits at the box office.
Given that type of pedigree, it is now coming as a surprise to a few looking at Nag’s decisions. It is known that Nag has joined hands with the eccentric Ram Gopal Varma for the movie ‘Officer’ and it has failed to evoke any interest so far. While that is one side, there are now reports that Nag might be joining hands with another senior director.
Filmnagar gossip mills are stating that Nag would be doing a movie with speed director Puri Jagannadh. As such, Puri has been going through a very lean patch due to his lack of innovation in movies. If this project also gets confirmed, it would certainly bring up the big question, is Nag heading the right way. Given his brains, let us wish he is doing the right thing.
