“It is a myth that Telugu audience would support masala movies alone. They encourage different attempts a lot and it was visible from the response to Vikram-starrer Nanna,” say those close to the film’s cast and crew.
For those wondering about ‘Nanna’ (meaning father), it is the Telugu version of ‘Deiva Thirumagal’, which saw the light of the day Friday last. The movie is running to packed houses all over Andhra Pradesh, say sources.
Important members of the movie’s team, including Vikram, Anushka and director A L Vijay, visited theatres screening ‘Nanna’ in Hyderabad and interacted with the audience. “We are overwhelmed,” they say in one voice.
Says Chiyaan, “We were really stunned by the reception to Nanna. Fans in Hyderabad thoroughly enjoyed the movie and they were highly appreciative about it. Credits go to the entire team led by Vijay.”
