Devadas starring Akkineni Nagarjuna and Nani, directed by Sriram Adittya, is one of the most awaited movie of this year. Yesterday the makers released the first look poster of Devadas that featured Nani and Nagarjuna. The makers also confirmed that Nagarjuna is playing the role of gangster Deva whereas Nani is essaying a doctor. If ongoing buzz in media and film Industry is to be believed, Nani and Nagarjuna starrer gangster and comedy entertainer Devadas has similarities with a Hollywood gangster- comedy movie ‘Analyze This’, which was released in 1999. The film stars Robert De Niro as a mafioso and Billy Crystal as his psychiatrist. Analyze This is directed by Harold Ramis and jointly produced by Paula Weinstein and Jane Rosenthal. According to the latest buzz, Devadas is a rip off of Analyze This.
Sriram Adittya has done a great task, who brought two huge stars in one frame. Coming to the female stars, Chalo fame Rashmika Mandanna will be seen romancing with Gentleman star Nani, whereas, Akanksha Singh will be seen romancing with Akkineni Nagarjuna. The Criminal star Nagarjuna recently talked about his role in his interview and said, “This new film that I am doing with Nani is very much in the Rajkumar Hirani territory. I am playing a gangster and Nani is playing a doctor. It is a very warm-hearted funny script.”
Earlier there was also buzz in the film industry that Devadas is the remake of Neil Nitin Mukesh starrer Johny Gaddar but later on, Sriram Adittya clarified it via his tweet, “My next film with @iamnagarjuna sir and @NameisNani Produced by @VyjayanthiFilms is not a Remake of any film. Its a original script .Just wanted clarify :)”
Devadas is being bankrolled by Vyjayanthi Movies and it has the music by Mani Sharma.
