Nagarjuna, every director's delight: Veerabhadram
Chennai: Director Veerabhadram, who has teamed up with Akkineni Nagarjuna in upcoming Telugu action-drama 'Bhai', says working with the actor was truly delightful.
Veerabhadram's past films as a director include the successful Telugu films 'Aha Na Pellanta' and 'Poola Rangadu'.
"With just two films old in the industry, I was extremely nervous when I started working with Nag (Nagarjuna) sir. However, the professional that he is at work, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He may be a superstar, but he is definitely every director's delight," Veerabhadram told IANS.
"When I met him to narrate the script, he listened with utmost patience. He even agreed because he loved the script. How many star actors would be willing produce a film with a newcomer," he added.
Nagarjuna has produced 'Bhai' and also plays the lead role in it. It also stars Prasanna Venkatesan, Richa Gangopadhyay, Sonu Sood and Nathalia Kaur.
He says the film is made keeping in mind Nagarjuna's image.
"No matter how good the content is, a superstar needs to be presented in a way his fans will enjoy. Generally, I hunt for actors after I finish my script, but for 'Bhai', I wrote the script keeping in mind Nag sir and, therefore, it was important to do justice to his image," he said.
"It's an action flick with good scope for performance. I don't want to reveal the story, but I can promise that it will be different from his other films," said Veerabhadram.
The film is nearing completion and is getting ready for summer release. It has music by Devi Sri Prasad and cinematography by Sameer Reddy.
