Nagma ruled the roost in the Tamil and Telugu film industries during the 1990s. She had paired up some of the top stars in these film industries including Rajinikanth, Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh, Nagarjuna and others making her one of the most famous heroines of her time.
The last time she appeared in a Telugu film was in 2002 with Ninu Choodaka Nenundalenu but appeared in a cameo role. Later, the actor began concentrating in Bhojpuri and Marathi films. Her last acting assignment was with the Bhojpuri film Tu Hamaar Hou in 2007. After 12 long years, Nagma is set for a comeback with a Tollywood film.
Reports are that she has been roped in to play Allu Arjun’s mom in the upcoming movie that will be directed by Trivikram Srinivas. The director has a pivotal role for her and reports are that Nagma has agreed to hop on board. The film will be bankrolled by Allu Aravind’s Geetha Arts and S Radha Krishna’s Haarika and Haasini Creations.
There are reports that Kiara Advani of Bharat Ane Nenu fame is in talks with the filmmakers to play the female lead in this film. However, there is no official confirmation on this yet.
Allu Arjun’s last film was Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, which released in summer last year. The film, directed by writer Vakkantham Vamsi, turned out to be a big flop. Following this debacle at the box office, Allu Arjun took some time deciding on his next.
It may be noted here that he is also holding discussions with directors Sankalp Reddy and Parasauram and may most probably be teaming up with them after completing the film with Trivikram Srinivas.
Trivikram’s last outing was Aravinda Sametha, which did well at the box office. The film, released on October 11 last year, had Jr. NTR and Pooja Hegde playing the lead pair.
