King Nagarjuna collaborated with Natural star Nani for a crazy multistarrer movie 'Devadas' which is gearing up to hit the screens on September 27. On Thursday, the movie unit grandly organised the audio launch event of the film. Samantha and Akhil also attended the event. Talking at the event, Nagarjuna said that there are three reasons for accepting this film. When the first one is the story narrated by Sriram Aditya, the second one is producer Ashwini Dutt and the third one is Nani.

He remembered that his father Akkineni Nageswara Rao's 'Devadas' released in 1953 and now his 'Devadasu' is getting released on 27th. Talking about Ashwini Dutt, "When 'Oka Seeta Katha' movie was about to get released, Ashwini was just 24 years old. He used to wake up at 4 AM and stand in front of NTR's house. After waiting there for 4 months, NTR gave him the chance with 'Eduruleni Manishi'. NTR was the one who kept the Vyjayanti Movies name to the banner. I am the only hero who has done so many movies in that production banner." Said Nagarjuna.

Talking about the other leads, "I have always wanted to do a multi starrer with Nani. His dialogue delivery is really smooth. We were returning from Thailand after completing the shoot. As it was a night journey a few people boarded the flight and got drunk. At that time, Rashmika became my bodyguard. As I tweeted, after a long time of beautiful girl like Akanksha Singh shared the screen space with me. I am sure that she will definitely become a star one day" added Nag.

He said had never seen husband and wife releasing their movies on the same day and both turning out to hit. "On the day of the release, Samantha became sad after seeing 'Sailaja Reddy Alludu' reviews. I said everything would be alright by the evening and it did. And just like I said, 'U-Turn' movie collections also increased. " Said Nag.
