Akkineni Nagarjuna has been a busy man in recent days with son Naga Chaithanya getting married to Samantha and his new movie Raju Gari Gadhi hitting theatres tomorrow. After enjoying Nagarjuna's handsomeness in recent times, one could easily recognize the new look in him without a moustache. When asked about it, Nag confirmed that he was experimenting in his new looks just for fun.
But there seems to be a new story doing rounds in film circles. It is learnt that Nagarjuna has been approached by the makers of Mahabharata to enact the role of Lord Krishna. There was a news earlier that Nag was offered the role of Karna. But makers have changed their mind and wanted him to do role of Lord Krishna to which he accepted.
If there is any truth in this news, then it will be so good to see Nagarjuna becoming Krishna Bhagawan. Nandamuri hero’s feel that Lord Krishna character is their copyright. Now if Akkineni hero does the same and impresses, we may see a new heir to Lord Krishna.
Nagarjuna has earlier impressed one and all in the role of Annamayya, Ramadasu and Shirdi Sai. In fact, he even acted as a modern day Lord Krishna in the remake of Bruce Almighty with Vishnu Manchu in Krishnarjuna.
