Rana Daggubati hails from a legendary family. His grandfather D Rama Naidu was a veteran producer, his father Suresh Babu too is a top producer in Tollywood, while his uncles are Venkatesh and Nagarjuna, both top stars. And Naga Chaitanya and Akhil Akkineni are his cousins.
Meanwhile, Rana is taking off time for the Museum of Cinema (owned by his family) that was opened on his grandfather Rama Naidu’s 79th birth anniversary, in Vizag. Not only that, Rana will also be giving part of his remuneration from films towards the upkeep and maintenance of this place.
“My grandfather’s initial idea was to create an archive of every film. But it is sad to know that most of the old cameras or the classic equipment that we used to own have either been sold off, or are broken. But since we’ve been in the industry for the last 50 years, we wanted to start off by putting together a few things from our own archives,” he says.
Rana Daggubati is simultaneously shooting for three films- Baahubali 2, Ghazi, and a Hindi flick directed by Teja. Since the three belong to three different genres, it must be difficult for him to cope up.
When asked, the Arrambam and Bangalore Naatkal actor said, “I’ll start working on Teja’s project after finishing a schedule of Bahubali.”
Rana, one of the top stars of Tollywood, added: “I will be using hair extensions for Palvaalthevan’s role and the rest of my look is similar to that in the other one. So, in terms of the continuity, I’m good.”
The young actor’s next film will be helmed by director Sathya Siva of Kazhugu, Sivappu and Savale Samali fame. A period film, it will have Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music.
