Actor Rana Daggubati says the title of his upcoming film ‘Naan Aanaiyitaal’, the Tamil dubbed version of Telugu political drama ‘Nene Raju, Nene Mantri’, is inspired from a super-hit song from actor MG Ramachandran’s Tamil blockbuster ‘Enga Veetu Pillai’.

“The Tamil film title is inspired from a super hit song from the timeless matinee idol and charismatic leader MGR’s blockbuster film ‘Enga Veetu Pillai’, a remake of ‘Ramudu Bheemudu’, the first movie produced by my grandfather D. Ramanaidu,” Rana told IANS.

Explaining why the title is special, he said: “It’s very special for me as it brings memories of two of the greatest icons of the film industry who continue to inspire me.”

Rana plays a character called Jogendra in the film, directed by Teja.

Shot in the beautiful locales of Karaikudi and in other parts of south India, ‘Naan Aanaiyitaal’ is a film about Jogendra’s laden attitude.

“It has a strong mass appeal that will surely connect with Tamil audiences,” Rana said.

The film, produced by Suresh Daggubati, CH Bharath Chowdhary and V Kiran Reddy under Suresh Productions and Blue Planet Entertainments, also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Catherine Tresa, Ashutosh Rana and Navdeep.
