The director of Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu says that he finds working with Nani (as also Jiiva for the film's Tamil version) a learning experience. Refusing to draw comparisons between the performances of the two actors, he says that both Jiiva and Nani have performed differently within the same structure.
Heaping laurels on Nani, Gautham says, "With Nani, what struck me was his confidence. It has been a revelation. Nani, the most confident actor and it is a pleasure to work with him. Will do a film with him anytime given a chance."
Talking about the film, he says: "Simple film, beautiful music, very good actors, Jiiva, Nani and Samantha. Adithya too, actually. Great experience for me. Loved every moment."
Nani is one of the few actors to have got compliments from two ace directors in one year. Earlier before the release of Eega, Rajamouli called him a complete natural. Wait for the release of Krishna Vamsi's tentatively titled Paisaa!
