Is god-man Shirdi Sai Baba as powerful as Lord Balaji? This might be the question teasing handsome Nagarjuna from some time because he expressed the first shivering about portraying the character of Shirdi Sai on the day of muhurat of film 'Shirdi Sai Baba' in direction of Raghavendra Rao. It was during the making time of ‘Annamayya’ that Nagarjuna spent most of time like a true disciple of Venkateshwara digesting the character. Yet, he faced continuous flops followed by ‘Annamayya’ and many can expect the reason.
Now, ‘Shirdi Sai Baba’ is neither a disciple nor a follower, he himself is a god. So, Nagarjuna is heard to be terrified on perfecting the essence of this character. In order not to see that any misfortunes haunt his family during and after the completion of film, Nag is taking all possible precautionary steps to win only the blessings of Sai Baba’s soul but not his anger.
