Interview: Nani

Posted on December 23, 2017


In his career spanning nine years, Nani has come a long way from playing quirky roles to being called a ‘Natural Star’ in Telugu cinema. For the past couple of years, the actor has been basking in the glory of back to back hits starting from Yevade Subramanyam to his latest film MCA, which took a flying start at the box-office. Yet, he has remained unaffected by stardom and has resisted the urge to take up larger-than-life roles. His success story in the industry is a testimony that with oodles of talent, and a little bit of luck, anyone can make it big.

In an exclusive conversation with Film Companion, Nani opens up about his childhood, how Mani Ratnam’s films shaped his thoughts, why stardom scares him at times, and how he strives to make his characters likeable.
