King Nagarjuna who delivered super hit films like ‘Ninne Pelladuta’, ‘Manmadhudu’ and ‘Mass’ through his home banner Annapurna Studios is now producing and acting in ‘Rajanna’ after a long gap. It is learnt that the actor was inspired by the wonderful subject of ‘Rajanna’ and hence wanted to produce it on his own.
Nagarjuna says that he was immensely impressed with his character in the film. “‘Rajanna’ is the story of a freedom fighter. This is the realistic subject based on 3-4 incidents that occurred during the independence movement. The role of ‘Rajanna’ has given me complete job satisfaction. Director Vijayendra Prasad dealt very well with ‘Rajanna’. Rajamouli also filmed the action sequences with lot of interest and proved his worth in doing the action part. The climax is the highlight of this film. Keeravani’s music is the soul of this film. 8 year old baby Aney has given a superb performance in the key role she essayed. Her role has vital importance in this film. Art director Ravinder designed many sets and created the freedom movement atmosphere for the film. ‘Rajanna’ is the prestigious film coming under Annapurna Studios banner. These kind of films are very rare for any artist. The production of ‘Rajanna’ is going to be wind up soon. I’m also excitedly waiting for Rajanna’s release. ‘Rajanna’ will be a universal film that will attract everyone. ‘Rajanna’ creates a patriotic feel.”
