This footage of Nag trolling Nani created a lot of buzz in the social media on Sunday.

Talking about Nani's mobile addiction, Nagarjuna said that it is a scary habit of most of the people. "The moment I see Nani, he is on his phone. I feel that he has a disease of looking at his phone all the time. Not only him but many others in the country have the same disease. They just do not bother what is happening around them and are in their own world which is quite scary," Nag told 123Telugu

When asked about his working experience with Nani, Nagarjuna said, "Personally, I did not know Nani much but from what I have seen on screen and on the sets, he is a very professional actor. Our chemistry will be a massive highlight of the film as the audience will just love Deva and Das characters completely."
