Confident about the film

To the question, “Hi Nanna, you seem very confident,” Nani says, “That’s the confidence the content of Hi Nanna provided me with. If I watch any film and I like it, I post about it on social media.

On pulling off roles like Animal

Given that he loved Animal, would he ever play a role like Ranbir Kapoor’s in the film? “One hundred percent. Would you have ever imagined me in a story like Dasara? Till I do a role like that, you can't. Perhaps I will even play a role with more madness than the one in Animal one day. When such challenging roles and stories come my way, I prefer to do them.”
