King Nagarjuna: Naa Saami Ranga is a Sankranti Festive Feast

Nagarjuna is gearing up to captivate and entertain movie enthusiasts with his upcoming film, "Naa Saami Ranga," directed by choreographer Vijay Binni. The much-anticipated film is set to hit the screens on January 14, 2024. As a precursor to the release, Nagarjuna engaged in an interactive session with the press.

Q: Is 'Naa Saami Ranga' the quickest film you've completed in your career?

A: Undoubtedly, when we look at the timeline from the start of shooting to the release date, 'Naa Saami Ranga' stands out as one of the fastest projects in my career. It's not just about working days; we managed to complete the shoot in 72 days, with my personal involvement spanning 60 days. Efficient pre-production played a pivotal role in achieving this speed. Thankfully, we meticulously planned for this film. Having maestro Keeravani as our music director was a stroke of luck. Three songs were ready even before we commenced shooting, and the background music for the fight sequence was pre-prepared. Shooting the fight scenes with the pre-prepared background music was a game-changer. Keeravani's contribution played a significant role in the film's swift production, and he emerged as the star of our movie with every song being exceptional.
