Telugu actor Nagarjuna who is currently busy with his upcoming flick Manmadhudu 2 believes that humor sells more than stunts.
According to reports, the director has incorporated two action sequences in the movie to add to its commercial elements, but Nag wants it to be removed. The veteran actor is sure that his fans will want humor more that action and therefore has decided against it, according to sources.
Directed by Rahul Ravindran and bankrolled jointly by Nag’s Manam enterprises and P Kiran’s Anandi Art Creations, the shooting of the film is underway in Hyderabad with the star cast comprising Rakul Preet Singh as the female lead with Vennela Kishore, Lakshmi, Devadarshini, Rao Ramesh and Jhansi in supporting roles.
Manmadhudu, a 2002 rom-com, had Akkineni Nagarjuna in the lead role and he had bankrolled the venture under his home banner Annapurna Studios. The film starred Sonali Bendre as Nag’s leading lady. The film was a big hit of his career and after all these years, a sequel to it is being made.
On Nagarjuna choosing Rahul Ravindran to direct Manmadhudu 2, the sources say that the actor-turned-director impressed the star to a great extent with his debut flick Chi La Sow that fetched him the opportunity to don the director’s robes for the sequel to Manmadhudu.
