Suriya, a bigger star outside Tamil Nadu too: Nagarjuna

Chennai, Feb 27 (IANS) Telugu film star Akkineni Nagarjuna says Suriya, whom he admires, is a bigger star outside of Tamil Nadu too.

“I’m a fan of a very few actors. Suriya happens to be one among them. I fell in love with his work, especially after ‘Ghajini’, and I think he is a bigger star not just in Tamil Nadu. He is equally popular in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana too,” Nagarjuna said at the audio launch of his upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual “Thozha” on Friday.

Suriya was the chief guest at the event, where also present were Karthi and Tamannaah Bhatia, the lead actors of “Thozha”.

Talking about the film, which is the official remake of French drama “The Intouchables”, Nagarjuna said he was lucky to have worked in it.

“I consider myself extremely lucky to have been a part of this project. It is a film very close to my heart,” he said, adding that he found a younger brother in Karthi after working with him in “Thozha”.

In the film, Nagarjuna plays a quadriplegic millionaire bound to a wheelchair, and Karthi will be seen as his caretaker.

Taking a dig at Karthi, he said: “My only problem with the film was that Karthi got to dance with Tamannaah, but I couldn’t.”

Nagarjuna also credited Karthi for helping him to dub in Tamil after many years.

Directed by Vamsi Paidipally, the film is produced by PVP Cinema and it’s slated for release on March 25.

The film is titled “Oopiri” in Telugu.
