Nag out of Sankranthi race

King Nagarjuna is on high by scoring back to back hits with Manam, Soggade Chinni Nayana and Oopiri. Currently, he is shooting for a devotional flick called Om Namo Venkateshaya under the direction of K. Raghavendra Rao. This film is based on the life of Hathiram Baba.

Earlier, it was reported that the movie will release during Sankranthi. Even Nagarjuna said in a press meet that they are planning it to shoot during Sankranthi season. But the latest buzz reveals that the makers are planning it to release on February 9. The expectations are high on this film as this combo has delivered blockbuster devotional flicks in the past like Annamayya and Sri Ramadasu. Vimala Raman, Saurabh, Anushka and Pragya Jaiswal are playing other lead roles in this film.
