The one-minute teaser showcasing the prowess of actor Nagarjuna playing the character of Hathiram Baba is already raving reviews. The movie, which has music by M M Keeravani has created quite a buzz before its tentative release on February 10, 2017.
Om Namo Venkatesaya is like a sequel to Nag’s blockbuster hit Annamayya. Both the films have the actor playing an ardent follower of Lord Venkatesha or Balaji. Except in this one Nagarjuna seems more aggressive and violent than the Annamayya.
Meanwhile, reports suggest that the satellite rights of all versions of the film were clinched by ETV for a whopping sum of Rs 12.5 crore. Nagarjuna’s earlier film Annamayya got huge TRPs for the channel too.
