Akkineni Nagarjuna is now 59 years old and it is not an easy task to pull off all the roles. Here, there is no worry about the physical fitness but the acceptance from the audience for certain roles is the real thing.
If we look at Nag’s contemporaries like Chiranjeevi (63 years), Venkatesh (58) and Balakrishna (58), already Chiranjeevi has given up doing routine commercial movies rather he is picking only larger than life character. And then, Venky is a bit lucky to do well with comedies, while Balayya is also struggling to find a nerve. Like how senior heroes in Bollywood decided their path, it is time for these Telugu heroes as well to find a route.
We hear that the whole of Manmadhudu 2 shoot has come to an end now and Nagarjuna is looking forward to seeing the result of this film on August 9th. If this film scores well, then the actor might take up more matured romantic comedies, else he will be choosing only masala movies, they say.
In Manmadhudu 2, Nag for the first time will be playing a role that is close to his age rather than the young ascetic roles he’s been doing all these days.
