What happens when a rising talent of Tollywood meets a legendary actor of South Film Industry? Excitement, hysteria and sheer joy! That was what was evident with Nani’s reaction when he happened to meet his idol Kamal Hassan recently in Chennai. Incidentally, Nani was shooting in the same location for tamil remake of ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ where Kamal was for his next super sequel, Vishwaroopam 2. Apparently, Nani found that out and rushed to meet Kamal, where the former was received with great hospitality. Looking at the series of tweets on his social networking site, it was pretty obvious that Kamal meant a world to Nani. The actor was tweeting continuosly without breaks, causing a huge amazement amongst fans –
” As I said a lot of times earlier .. One man who’s an inspiration and reason for me to realise cinema is wer I belong .. Kamal sir ”
“We are shooting in adjacent floors .. He for vishwaroopam and me for yash raj films .. And I was getting nervous in my own set ”
“Like a kid who wants to get a glimpse of his favourite movie star .. Thot will go meet him and take a pic and ask for an autograph”
“To my surprise what followed was a warm welcome..He knows me and has seen my work …Yahooooo..Couldn’t believe it.. He introduced me to his heroine and told her how my name has a different meaning in tamil when its just a pet name in Telugu”
If one remembers well, recently, Nani also happened to buy a huge painting of Kamal Hassan as ‘Thevar Magan’ from another talented Actor Artist with the same first name, Kamal Kamaraju. So it all fits in one piece. We totally understand the sense of hero worship here.
