New Delhi : In 1989, Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma's first movie was released. The film name was 'Shiva' & it featured Nagarjuna in the lead. RGV, who has collaborated with Nagarjuna after about 25 years, jokingly tweeted that he has got a 'new actor' for his next yet-untitled film, on Friday. Ram Gopal Varma posted, "After 25 years of search, I found a new actor called @iamnagarjuna, who's doing a never before seen kind of a very realistic action hero in #NagRGV4". Nagarjuna will be seen as an action hero & plays a cop, in the film. Nagarjuna filming an action scene in the posted picture.
Here's the Ram Gopal Varma tweet.
Ram Gopal Varma shot Shiva with Nagarjuna on 16th February, 29 years ago. He tweeted, "Today, February 16, is the first day shoot of my first film Shiva. On this occasion, here's a picture of my brand new hero @iamnagarjuna from #NagRGV4". He tweeted this with the picture.
This will be a fourth collaboration of Nagarjuna Akkineni and Ram Gopal Varma.
"February 16, 1989... 29 years ago today, I started the game changer cult film Shiva with @RGVzoomin!!! It's time to rock again with #NagRGV4", tweeted by Nagarjuna who also tweeted the same picture.
"Well, going by his recent works, I shouldn't have. In fact, when he first came to me three months ago, I very clearly and explicitly told him to go back and work on the script and come back later, and not do two other films while waiting for my consent. Rather he should put all his other projects and ideas and away and just focus on my film. That was my condition for agreeing to do his film," Nagarjuna told this to news agency IANS on working with Ram Gopal Varma.
Nagarjuna posted that he has started filming in Mumbai, some days ago. He tweeted, "Feeling thrilled shooting in Mumbai for Ram Gopal Varma's action film. We are back again. #NagRgv4".
Ram Gopal Varma responded soon & tweeted.
