Rajamouli is a great actor: Hero Nani
Actor Nani singled out director Rajamouli for special praise at the music launch of their much awaited animation extravaganza, Eega. Apparently, the maverick director is a pretty good actor himself. We hear a lot about Rajamouli, the master director, but not many people know that he is a fantastic actor as well. He enacts every scene in the film and watching him perform is quite intimidating, he is just brilliant. If I manage to match up to at least 10% of it, I would have done a great job. I think he has done all the actors a favor by choosing to become a director, he said. He did not stop at that and went on to call him a one man army. He is a director, technician, stunt master and choreographer, all rolled into one. It is privilege to work with. I initially felt a little sad about getting only a small role in the movie, but in hindsight I am glad to have got a small part in this incredible film. I think it is going to be a historic movie, said Nani.
His co-star Samantha also joined in saying, Watching Rajamouli work is just incredible. His dedication for work and humility is something worth emulating. Working on this film with Rajamouli and his family has been a unforgettable experience for me.
The music launch was a grand affair attended by a galaxy of Tollywood stars. NTR, Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Rana, Sunil, Sudeep, Dasari Narayana Rao, Rama Naidu, Suresh Babu, Samantha, Keeravani, Ganam Gungaraju and Shyam Prasad Reddy. MM Keeravani has composed the music for the movie.
