Chennai: Telugu actor Nani, currently shooting here for southern remake of 'Band Baja Baaraat', had an opportunity to run into actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, and says he felt like a kid waiting for his autograph.

Nani and Kamal Haasan were shooting on adjacent floors. Kamal was filming for upcoming multilingual thriller 'Vishwaroopam 2'.

"Like a kid who wants to get a glimpse of his favourite movie star, I thought (I) will go meet him and take a picture (with him) and ask for an autograph," Nani posted on his Twitter page.

Nani, however, couldn't believe when Kamal welcomed him graciously.

"To my surprise what followed was a warm welcome. He knows me and has seen my work. (I) couldn't believe it. He introduced me to his heroine and told her how my name has a different meaning in Tamil when it's just a pet name in Telugu," he wrote.

Having met Kamal, he feels he is in a state of trance.

"(I) had a chat with him and got back to shoot. (I think) dreams do come true. I'm still in a trance," he further posted.

Nani, known for Telugu films such as 'Ashta Chamma' and 'Ala Modalaindi', rose to stardom with critically acclaimed Telugu revenge-drama 'Eega'.

He is also busy shooting for Telugu action-drama 'Janda Pai Kapiraju'.
