Nani is an Indian film actor and producer who works predominantly in Telugu cinema and appears in a few Tamil language films. He made his acting debut with Mohan Krishna Indraganti 2008 comedy film Ashta Chamma, an Indian adaptation of Oscar Wilde play The Importance of Being Earnest.[1] After Ashta Chamma commercial success,[2] Nani played the lead roles in three Telugu films in the next two years: Ride (2009), Snehituda... (2009) and Bheemili Kabaddi Jattu (2010). In 2011, Nani collaborated with B. V. Nandini Reddy on the romantic comedy film Ala Modalaindi which was profitable.[3] The same year, he made his Tamil cinema debut with Anjana Ali Khan's Veppam, a crime drama set in the backdrop of North Chennai.[4] The following year, Nani collaborated with S. S. Rajamouli and Gautham Menon on the Telugu-Tamil bilingual Eega and the romance film Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu respectively. The former, which was about a murdered man reincarnating as a housefly and avenging his death, earned Nani an award in the Best Hero category at the 2013 Toronto After Dark Film Festival.[5] He received the Nandi Award for Best Actor for his performance in Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu.[6]

Nani ventured into film production in 2013 as a co-producer for the film D for Dopidi.[7] He faced three box office failures in the upcoming years: Paisa (2013), Aaha Kalyanam (2014) and Janda Pai Kapiraju (2015). Nani termed it a "low phase" in his career and worked on the "planning of films and the timing of their release".[8] He then played the lead role in Nag Ashwin Yevade Subramanyam (2015), a film focusing on a businessperson's journey to the Himalayas seeking self exploration.[9] Nani later starred in Maruthi Dasari comedy film Bhale Bhale Magadivoy (2015), in which he played an absent minded scientist easily prone to distraction.[10] It was the actor's first blockbuster success,[11] and earned him the Critics Award for Best Actor - South at the 63rd Filmfare Awards South ceremony.[12] With his subsequent releases, the profitable ventures Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha (2016) and Gentleman (2016), he gained stardom in Telugu cinema.[13] Nani later played the lead in the commercially successful Telugu films Majnu (2016), Nenu Local (2017) and Ninnu Kori (2017).[14]
