Kajal Aggarwal, who has reunited with filmmaker Teja for upcoming Telugu political drama Nene Raju, Nene Mantri, says it is a very special film in her career for many reasons. “This is indeed a very special film for several reasons. First and foremost, I have teamed up with my mentor Teja sir for the second time after a decade,” Kajal told IANS.
Kajal made her acting debut with Teja’s “Lakshmi Kalyanam”. “It’s been a pleasure working with him (Teja) as he encourages me to unlearn the nuances I have picked up over the span of my film career and to look at my character and this film with a fresh perspective,” she said. She plays a character called Radha in the film, co-starring Rana Daggubati.
“Secondly, exchange of ideas, opinions and challenges make you think out of the box and I have felt this was possible because of the comfort level I share with Rana. Working with friends is always fun and this has been a fabulous few months,” she said.
Also, “Nene Raju, Nene Mantri” is Kajal’s 50th film and that makes it even more special. Kajal says the film, which will simultaneously release in Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam, will be the best birthday gift as she turns 32 on Monday. “Nene Raju, Nene Mantri” also stars Catherine Tresa, Navdeep and Ashutosh Rana. Produced by Suresh Babu, the film is gearing up for release soon.
Going by the look, Kajal seems to be playing an obedient wife who rules over the man who rules the society.
