Speaking about Akhil's Debut, Nagarjuna has reportedly said "I will produce Akhil’s debut film. I will leave the choice of story and director to Akhil but it won't be an outside production house. I should have produced Naga Chaitanya’s debut flick. I won’t repeat that mistake in Akhil’s case "
Nagarjuna said, “I’m planning to concentrate on producing films in 2014. As of now, Manam is under production. Speaking about Uyyala Jampala, Nag said that he is extremely happy that the film became a hit. Which has restored his faith in good films
When speaking about his movies in 2013 he said that he is ashamed of doing a film like Bhai. He added that he lost self respect after doing a film like Bhai and he also stopped his family from watching Bhai movie.
The actor confesses to have spent "more time with dad in the past two
months than in the last five years." But being around your father
knowing he's not going to be around for long can never be easy but the
way ANR has been dealing with it, seems inspiring. "Ignoring our
protestations, he (dad) turned up at the studio to complete the
remaining three days of the shoot of Manam, just days after getting
operated. He even insisted on finishing the dubbing as well, because he
was afraid the tone of his voice might change. Watching his commitment
has been overwhelming," says Nag.
This film is going to be very emotional for the entire family and the actor has "given a free hand to director Vikram" to take all the time he needs to deliver the best output. "I want a well cut diamond," he says.
