When in dilemma, I run my scripts through dad: Naga Chaitanya

Chennai, Aug 29 : Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, son of Akkineni Nagarjuna, admits that he doesn't mind consulting his father about film projects whenever he is in doubt. However, he says he signs a film only once he is truly convinced about it.


"Dad has been my guiding force. Whenever I am confused about choosing a script, I discuss it with him. However, I have said 'no' to scripts he agreed to, while he has said 'yes' too for scripts I have turned down. We have this mutual understanding that works between us," Chaitanya told IANS.

"The reason sometimes I have said 'no' to scripts that were cleared by him is because I need to be convinced before I take up a project. I just can't do a film because my fans would love to see me in it," he added.

The 26-year old says the only advice he has received from his father is "do what you love".



"That's the only advice he has ever given me. I have been following it religiously. My father and my grandfather always watch my films and share their feedback with me. It helps me a lot in my own career," he added.

Chaitanya is currently working alongside his father and grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao in upcoming Telugu family comedy "Manam".

Meanwhile, he is awaiting the release of Telugu action-drama "Auto Nagar Surya". He also has two Telugu films in the offing.
