Nagarjuna’s upcoming film Soggade Chinni Nayana has a village backdrop. He plays a dual role one of which is that of a typical villager and the actor says that the inspiration for this character is his father, the late Akkineni Nageswara Rao.
Most of ANR’s films that had a village backdrop were huge hits and Nagarjuna has taken a leaf out of his father’s books. Also, the dhoti that Nagarjuna wears in the film is the same one worn by ANR for his films. He is also wearing his father’s watch that the latter had bought in 1959.
The film is directed by debutant K. Kalyan Krishna. Ramya Krishna and Lawanya Tripathi are playing the female leads, while Anasuya and Hamsa Nandini are playing cameos. The film is scheduled for a Sankranti release.
