Nagarjuna created a sensation with Manmadhudu. It is one of the few classical entertainers in King's career. Nag's expressions, performance as a woman hater, Sonali Bendre's beauty, Brahmanandam's ribtickling comedy, the dialogues of Trivikram Srinivas and Vijay Bhaskar's direction left all mesmerised.
Nag dared to take the risk of starring in the sequel for Manmadhudu and the sequel titled Manmadhudu 2 is progressing at a brisk pace in Portugal under the direction of Rahul Ravindran of Chi La Sow fame. Nag is romancing hotties Rakul Preet Singh and Payal Rajput in the film.
Now rumours are spreading that Manmadhudu 2 is actually not a sequel for Manmadhudu. Only few scenes appear similar and inspired from Manmadhudu but the rest will revolve around sister sentiment. Buzz is Nagarjuna will have 5-6 sisters similar to Mega Star Chiranjeevi's hit film Hitler.
By the time Nag gets them married, he crosses 40s and from there it will be a ribtickling journey of searching for a suitable bride for him. Nagarjuna's wife Amala and daughter in law Samantha are also playing important roles in the film.
