Nagarjuna Akkineni is preparing for his 100th movie. He most recently appeared in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva and will be seen next in The Ghost. The top actor has entrusted four directors with writing his 100th picture. “They are all being assigned, that’s been done. I am looking into all of those things. I want to make sure. I can’t tell you the names of these filmmakers because there are two or three I am listening to in parallel, so it’s not nice,” he shared.
What genre would he choose for his 100th film? “It has to be a visual spectacle, which I need to do and bring people to the theatres. Doesn’t have to be a Brahmastra or VFX (heavy film), but larger than life is what I feel is bringing people to the theatres in big numbers. Of course, the other films are also running, recently Sita Ramam did fantastically, and Oke Oka Jeevitham, which was released by Dream Warrior Pictures. Amala (Akkineni) was there and Sharwanand was there", Nagarjuna Akkineni answered.
"It jumped 300 percent from Friday to Sunday evening," he continues. Thus, the short movie was entirely content-based yet included a time travel element. To locate his mother, the youngster goes back in time. I want everyone to be able to see the 100th film, which I know will be mass production.
The Ghost, directed by Praveen Sattaru, will be released on October 5 and will compete at the box office with GodFather, a political action movie starring Chiranjeevi.
