Nagarjuna And Tabu Likely To Collaborate For Akhil Akkineni’s Film


Nagarjuna and Tabu, who were considered to be close back in the ’90s, are reportedly teaming up for a Telugu film. Nagarjuna would be producing his son Akhil Akkineni’s film, and has approached Tabu to play his son’s mother. 

“Tabu was approached for the project a few months ago. After going through the script, she immediately gave her nod. Other cast members will be locked by this weekend. One can expect an official announcement within a fortnight. The film will roll next month with a 30-day schedule in Hyderabad,” a source has told Mid-Day. 

In an earlier interview, Nagarjuna was quoted as saying that his friendship with Tabu has lasted for almost a life time. “Our friendship goes way back, since I was 21 or 22 and she was just 16. That’s like almost half a lifetime. About our friendship, whatever is said is less. I have nothing to hide about her. When you mention her name, my face lights up. She is a beautiful person, and a beautiful friend. She always will be,” he said.

If the actress does get on board, the film would mark her return to Telugu cinema; her last Telugu film was Pandurangadu in 2008.

The 45-year-old actress currently has Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again in the pipeline.
