Great actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao’s grandson and King Nagarjuna’s son Yuva Samrat Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, who is rising top as successful hero by impressing audience and fans with different films, is celebrating his birthday on November 23. The actor spoke about his career journey through the media. Here are the excerpts:

‘Manam’ is a memorable film…

With the fans and audience’s encouragement, my career is very happy as hero. ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’, ‘Thadaka’ and ‘100% Love’ and ‘Oka Laila Kosam’ have got good response. I got much satisfaction with the success of ‘Manam’ than all other films in my career. Working with my grandfather and father together is a wonderful experience. ‘Manam’ is a memorable film in my career. My aim is to earn good name by doing different films which will impress audience and fans. I entered into production while doing ‘Oka Laila Kosam’ which was made under Annapurna Studios. My ambition is to do good films which will impress all sects of audience.

‘Sahasame Swasaga Sagipo’ directed by Gautham Menon is another good film…

Gautham Menon, who carved a romantic image for me with ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’, is once again directing me for ‘Sahasame Swasaga Sagipo’. The film is nearing completion. First half of the film is a love story that happens in a road trip. Second half will goes on in an action mode. Action part will be very natural and audience will definitely connect to the hero character. Gautham Menon has wonderfully designed the hero character. I’m very happy that after ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’, AR Rahman garu is providing music for this film. Music is the big asset for the film. Gautham Menon, who is famous for choosing poetic title, has selected this impressive title. After watching the film everyone will say that the title is perfectly apt to the film. Kona Venkat and Ravi Ravindar Reddy are making the film without compromising in any aspect.

I was very impressed with the script ‘Premam’…

Producer Suryadevara Naga Vamsi asked me to do a film with ‘Karthikeya’ director Chandu Mondeti. I was very impressed with ‘Karthikeya’ and since then I’m travelling with Chandu Mondeti. We readied a script too. But in between a love story titled ‘Premam’ was release in Malayalam and became super hit. I was very impressed by the script and suggested him to remake it. It’s an ultimate love story which depicts the variations of love while studying in school, college and in a matured age. The character of the hero which changes in life journey will be very interesting. The hero character will connect to everyone in the real life. Vamsi and Chandu Mondeti are doing the film with great passion. Title for the Telugu remake was not yet finalized.

Young producer Suryadevara Naga Vamsi is producing the ‘Premam’ remake with the great combination on Sitara Entertainments banner with PDV Prasad as presenter. The film will be launched with formal Pooja on November 28 and the regular shooting will start from December 3. Shruti Haasan is the female lead. Two other heroines along with Shruti Haasan will play the female leads opposite Naga Chaitanya. One is Anupama Parameswaran and another heroine is not yet finalized.
