Natural Star, Nani, previously took on the role of a father to a 10-year-old son in Jersey. Now, he is set to charm audiences again as the affectionate father of a seven-year-old girl named Mahi (Kiara) in his upcoming film “Hi Nanna.” In a recent revelation, he shares why he chose ‘Hi Nanna’ story and the secret behind working with kids and reflects on whether it’s a challenging or smooth experience, unveiling his unique formula for it.
Before stepping into the spotlight as an actor with the 2008 film Ashta Chamma directed by Mohan Krishna Indraganti, Nani served as an assistant director for projects like Radhe Gopalam, Allari Bullodu, Asthram, and Dhee in 2005 and 2006. His stint as an assistant director equipped him with valuable patience while collaborating with children on film sets. Nani expresses his perspective, emphasizing the joy of working with kids as co-stars, a sentiment rooted in his previous role as the in-charge of kids and their dialogues during his assistant director days. Taking responsibility for them is something he loves, as the excitement that kids bring to the set is contagious.
Moreover, He chose “Hi Nanna” because it has a heartwarming story. Lately, most movies are about action and drama. We’ve been missing simple love stories. He thinks this film can stand out at the box office by being different from the current trends.
Once again, the bond between Baby Kiara and Nani shines through in interviews, creating a heartwarming family-like connection that extends beyond the screen.
