Contrary to popular belief, actor Nagarjuna has no problem with the Daggubati family because he’s willing to promote the latest film.


Actor Nagarjuna has indicated that he’ll be promoting his son Chaitanya’s film, Venky Mama, which also stars Venkatesh. Nagarjuna, who was supposed to attend a promotional event of the film, couldn’t as he was busy with other assignments.

But a source tells us that Nagarjuna will now be helping with the promotion of the film. “He’s told the team that he’ll begin promoting the movie in the coming few days and has requested them to fix a few interviews,” says the source.

As per some earlier reports, Nagarjuna, who generally promotes his son’s films, hadn’t committed to this film, apparently, because of Venkatesh and Suresh Babu.

But refuting those rumours, the above source says, “That’s completely incorrect because Nagarjuna is willing to promote the film. In fact, both Suresh Babu and Nagarjuna had produced a small film few years back, and Nagarjuna doesn’t have any problem with the Daggubati’s family.”

Even Chaitanya’s wife and actress Samantha has been promoting the film on her social media, requesting the team to fix her promotional events in the coming days when she’ll be available.

Venky Mama, which released on 13 December, has taken off on a flying note. The film’s first day’s collection alone from around the world is nearly Rs 9.5 crore.
