Nayanthara Opens Up On Tollywood Celebrities

“Telugu industry gave me a big warm hug,” says the Lady Superstar as she talks about Balakrishna, Chiranjeevi, and Jr NTR, among others 

Lady Superstar Nayanthara is busy with the promotions of her upcoming horror flick film Connect, which is slated for a  release on December 22. The 90-minute film has caught everyone’s attention for a unique feature - the movie does not have an interval. In a media interview, the actress opened up about her experience collaborating with various Tollywood heroes and termed her working experience in the industry as a warm hug. 

Here’s what she had to say about some of the prominent personalities of the Telugu Film Industry

Venkatesh Daggubati 

 “Venkatesh sir is my first hero in Telugu, I have done so many films with him.” The actress added that being on set with Venkatesh doesn’t feel tedious, “working with him feels like family. Because sir was so warm and so nice and so respectful in our first film.” She remarked that the comfort he provided during her first film boosted her confidence to keep acting in the industry. She concluded by stating, “it’s always about the first experience, and the first experience was so good.”


She complimented the actor for his childlike virtue and elaborated on how sweet he is, “Prabhas is too sweet. He’s like a kid. I don’t know if he’s still like that, but when I worked with him, he was a total brat. He’s always jumping around, cracking jokes. He’s just fun to be with. He’s like a small kid jumping around in the set." Speaking of his present success, she added, "Now he’s become such a big star,  I am so happy to see him succeed.”


Nayanthara chose ‘brat’ yet again as the perfect word to describe the RRR actor. She shared an anecdote from a movie set to give us a glimpse of what working with him feels like. When Nayanthara was busy getting her hairdo and makeup before a scene, NTR walked up to her and asked, “why are you doing so much of touch-up? Anyway, no one’s gonna look at you, they’re going to be looking at me.” She cracked up while recollecting the memory and then spoke about his dance skills. “I am so amazed by the way he dances, he transforms. He is the only hero I have seen who doesn’t do rehearsals. There would be random movements on the floor that only Tarak can do," said Nayanthara. Further, she fondly remembered how Tarak would ask her to practice (the dance moves) when he himself would not rehearse anything. 

Nandamuri Balakrishna

When asked about Balayya, Nayanthara remarked that although she had described others as kids, the biggest brat had to be Nandamuri Balakrishna. She commented, “Balakrishna sir, is like the biggest of brats. Sir is like the sweetest… Everyone is so scared of him, but actually, there’s no need to be so scared of him. He’s so fun to be with… he's a very happy person to be around.”

Nagarjuna Akkineni

If Nayanthara were to use one word to describe the Ghost actor, she would use “charmer.” She also added that he is one of the sweetest people to work with. 


The actress remarked, “For the kind of star he is, he can show a little bit of stardom or that (star) attitude.” “But,” she said, “he is extremely down to earth and extremely caring. Both films I did with him were partly his productions… one was entirely his production, and he was extra-extra sweet to me, and so nice to me.”

Ravi Teja

Nayanthara called Ravi Teja her best friend from the industry. She said, “Ravi and I used to be really good friends. He was one of my best friends, (although) now we’ve lost touch.” She remarked that his busy schedule and her reduced work in Tollywood contributed to them drifting apart. Remembering her first film with him, she noted, “We talk in Hindi. He speaks Hindi really well, and so when we started working together, we connected and would speak in Hindi.”

Nayanthara’s last Telugu outing was the Chiranjeevi starrer Godfather. She will be seen in ‘Connect’ slated for a multi-lingual theatrical release on December 22. She is also busy working on Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan in the direction of Atlee Kumar
