He is one actor who entered the industry with no background. And he has grown step by step thanks to his hard work and talent.
Though he had a wobbly start and took a few wrong steps at the beginning of his career, Nani stabilized his position thanks to Bhale Bhale Magadivoy. Since then, he has been giving consistent hits.
Till about two, three years back, his films did not ensure minimum guarantee.
Even a film like Krishnagadi Veera Prema Gadha which had good talk did not break even.
However, all this changed with Nenu Local and Ninnu Kori. With success of both the films, buyers' confidence on Nani increased eventually.
This also impacted his theatrical market. Till recently, his films were in the range of Rs 20 crore, but now his market has expanded to Rs 30 crore.
And his recently released film MCA has by far had the best openings in his career. In fact, the first day shares have surprised the trade analysts.
While one cannot deny the presence of Sai Pallavi in contributing to the openings, it is Nani who can be given full credit for the openings.
Though MCA has been getting mixed talk, Nani's name is expected to take it to the safe zone.
