Nagarjuna as mentalist in Raju Gari Gadhi 2

After playing an ardent devotee of Lord Balaji in his recent Telugu release Om Namo Venkatesaya, actor Akkineni Nagarjuna will be playing a mentalist in horror-thriller Raju Gari Gadhi 2.
“His character has been designed in such a way that it will be a treat for his fans. He plays a mentalist. He will be seen riding a fancy bike in the film. He will be in a very different avatar and, contrary to rumours, he is not playing an extended cameo,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.

Being directed by Omkar, the film is a sequel to his own 2015 superhit Raju Gari Gadhi.

The sequel also stars Seerat Kapoor, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, and Shakalaka Shankar. The source clarified that Samantha and Nagarjuna are not paired together in the film.
“No, they’re not playing a couple. Also, Samantha is not playing the ghost... she will be seen in a very emotional role.”

Nagarjuna will commence shooting for the film in March. The film is being produced by PVP Cinema and has music by S.S. Thaman.
