MGR connection in Rana's 'Naan Aanaiyitaal'

Actor Rana Daggubati says the title of his upcoming film "Naan Aanaiyitaal", the Tamil dubbed version of Telugu political drama "Nene Raju, Nene Mantri", is inspired by a super-hit song from actor M.G. Ramachandran's Tamil blockbuster "Enga Veetu Pillai".

"The Tamil film title is inspired by a super hit song from the timeless matinee idol and charismatic leader MGR's blockbuster film 'Enga Veetu Pillai', a remake of 'Ramudu Bheemudu', the first movie produced by my grandfather D. Ramanaidu," Rana told IANS.

Explaining why the title is special, he said: "It's very special for me as it brings memories of two of the greatest icons of the film industry who continue to inspire me."

Rana plays a character called Jogendra in the film, directed by Teja.

Shot in the beautiful locales of Karaikudi and in other parts of South India, "Naan Aanaiyitaal' is a film about Jogendra's laden attitude.

"It has a strong mass appeal that will surely connect with Tamil audiences," Rana said.

The film, produced by Suresh Daggubati, CH Bharath Chowdhary and V Kiran Reddy under Suresh Productions and Blue Planet Entertainments, also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Catherine Tresa, Ashutosh Rana and Navdeep.
