Everyone knows that Nani aspired to become a director and made his entry as a clap board operator for Radha Gopalam under Bapu direction. In fact, Sneha who starred as a heroine in this film besides Srikanth used to come to shooting along with her mother. During that time, watching Nani's hard work and dedication she remarked, ‘Ee kurradu tappakunda hero avutadu.’
No wonder, her words turned true as Nani went on to make his debut with Ashta Chamma and never turned back. He quickly attained stardom and became Natural Star finishing an envious double hat trick with his natural and realistic performances.
As of now, Nani has Krishnarjuna Yuddham in making. He is playing dual roles in the movie under Merlapaka Gandhi direction. Both Krishna and Arjun looks are unveiled on Sankranti occasion.
