In one of the interviews, he was asked about his inspiration in the film industry apart from his dad Akkineni Nageshwara Rao. Nag immediately replied that Chiranjeevi is his biggest inspiration as he has seen Chiru inside out right from the beginning of his career and always gets inspired by the way how Chiru went on to the top position with a sheer amount of hard work.
But one is wondering why Nag has taken Chiru's name all of a sudden. He never mentioned Chiru as his inspiration till now and he didn't mention even it during the pre-release event of Manmadhudu 2. Then, why is he going gaga over Chiru all of a sudden? Is he planning to trap mega fans to get collections for his movie? Well, it looks like so.
