Actor Rana Daggubati says the title of his upcoming film "Naan Aanaiyitaal", the Tamil dubbed version of Telugu political drama "Nene Raju, Nene Mantri", is inspired from a super-hit song from actor M.G. Ramachandran's Tamil blockbuster "Enga Veetu Pillai".
"The Tamil film title is inspired from a super hit song from the timeless matinee idol and charismatic leader MGR's blockbuster film 'Enga Veetu Pillai', a remake of 'Ramudu Bheemudu', the first movie produced by my grandfather D. Ramanaidu," Rana told IANS.
Explaining why the title is special, he said: "It's very special for me as it brings memories of two of the greatest icons of the film industry who continue to inspire me."
Rana plays a character called Jogendra in the film, directed by Teja.
Shot in the beautiful locales of Karaikudi and in other parts of south India, "Naan Aanaiyitaal' is a film about Jogendra's laden attitude.
"It has a strong mass appeal that will surely connect with Tamil audiences," Rana said.
The film, produced by Suresh Daggubati, CH Bharath Chowdhary and V Kiran Reddy under Suresh Productions and Blue Planet Entertainments, also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Catherine Tresa, Ashutosh Rana and Navdeep.
