Responding to the ‘copy’ allegations on his forthcoming film Officer, Nagarjuna has clarified that the film is based on a real-life person and it cannot be copy of any other story or anyone’s work.
When asked about the rumours that the film is a ‘free’make of Hollywood flick Taken, Nag quickly said that the law will take its own course if there is any such legal issue in the film.
Ask him whether Nag had questioned Ram Gopal Varma about his controversies or his tweets. Pat comes reply from Nag. “During the film’s shoot, the only conversation between RGV and Nag is about our film. Nothing more or nothing less. I never intruded into RGV’s personal space or never did he. Even I never let anyone tell me what I should do or what I should not do. In fact, I don’t even tell my children Chaitu or Akhil to be certain way.”
Agreeing that he is doing more films than his grown up sons Naga Chaitanya and Akhil, Nagarjuna said that Chaitu is telling him that he is doing more films and he need not worry since he is well-established than Chai.
“Chai and Akhil are more choosy. They are very conscious about their films. At this juncture of career, I could select any role or any experimental film since I could survive a flop and could work for my next unaffected. For them, it takes time,” shared Nagarjuna.
Currently working on his ongoing multi-starrer with Nani, Nag revealed that it is going to be out-and-out entertainer as the film is between a Mafia Don and a Doctor. Nag said he has big line up of films that he needs to confirm the order. He says he is mulling over to sign Mohanlal and Priyadarshan’s Kunjali Marakkar, a film based on the life of a 16th century Muslim naval chief Kunjali Makkar IV. It is likely to be Priyadarshan’s most expensive film and Nag has been asked to play a crucial role in the film.
Meanwhile, Nag is also in talks with actor Dhanush’s directorial which he wanted to make for his father-in-law Superstar Rajinikanth and his political debut.
