Karthi about Nagarjuna
King Akkineni Nagarjuna and Tamil actor Karthi are soon going to entertain audiences with their multistarrer Oopiri. Tamannaah Bhatia is the lead actress in the film. Nagarjuna plays a paraplegic patient in Oopiri movie which is directed by Vamsi Paidipally and produced by Prasad V Potluri on PVP Cinema. Gopi Sunder is the music composer of Oopiri.
Speaking about Oopiri and his co-stars in an interview, Karthi said, “I have always maintained that I do not want to do multi-starrers. I was determined not to do one, unless a film like, say, Sivaputrudu came along, where there were two lead characters in the film. And Oopiri was one such story for me. But added to that, I said yes to the film because I would get to work with Nagarjuna. He looks younger than me in this film. I observed him during the film’s shoot and found him to be a meticulous worker. He is very regular with his workouts and maintains a strict diet. His schedule is disciplined — he goes to bed early and wakes up early. But then, his positive attitude is also a reason he is physically fit. A happy mind means a healthy body, isn’t it?”. Also Karthi said, “He is very relaxed on the set. Until now, I have only heard about the ‘live in the moment’ attitude, but I got to see that in him. It was great working with him”.
