Boycott Maldives: Nag cancels his holiday trip to Maldives

Nagarjuna claimed that their comments about Prime Minister Modi were in bad taste

Seasoned star Nagarjuna claimed that he was planning to go to Maldives for a holiday trip with his family. “I was supposed to leave on January 17th for Maldives for a holiday since I couldn't spare much time for my family. I was working for 75 days for Big Boss and Naa Saami Ranga without a break,” says the actor in a video with composer M M Keeravani and invariably joins the 'boycott Maldives' campaign. “Now, I have cancelled my tickets and looking go to Lakshadweep next week,” he adds.

He claims he had been to Maldives many a time for its picturesque beaches. “I had gone to Maldives quite a few times, but this time I chose not to go there,” he informs and adds, “Their ministers comments against our Prime Minister Narendra Modi were in bad taste and they are going to pay a price. PM Modi is the leader of a 1.5 billion people and much respected across the world,” he points out.

On the work front, Nagarjuna is awaiting the release of his rural-centric film ‘Naa Saami Ranga’ to bounce back into the reckoning after few duds like ‘The Ghost’. He is banking on a Malayalam remake and also taking on his rivals at the ticket windows this Sankranthi festival. “I wish all my colleagues good luck,’ he had said.
