Inside reports from Tollywood say Akkineni Nagarjuna is irritated with constant comparison between his son's second film Hello and Nani's MCA.
His anger was visible when a media person brought up the topic at a press interaction, but he took care not to express anything negative.
Though many feel that Nagarjuna is a bit rattled by competition, he hasn't been showing it on public forums.
He has been maintaining that he does not see it as a fight between him and producer Dil Raju or as a fight between Akhil and Nani.
However, rumour has it that he is miffed with Dil Raju who stuck to his stand of releasing the film alongside Hello.
In fact, both Dil Raju and Nagarjuna have been taking care not to hurt each other by making any wrong statements.
Nagarjuna is a powerful star in Tollywood and Dil Raju is a number one producer in the industry. Hence, they are handling competition in a mature way.
Meanwhile, Nani has nothing much to lose even if his film suffers losses as he has been giving hit after hit. But for Akhil, it is a make or break moment as Hello means everything to his career.
Which is why Nag is worried about both the films releasing simultaneously.
