Nagarjuna sports a new look

Superstar Nagarjuna will be seen portraying a religious figure to a don in director Veerabhadrams big-ticket entertainer Bhai. The director, who has two hits to his name in Aha Naa Pellanta and Poolarangadu, researched for two years on Dawood Ibrahim before he approached Nagarjuna. Its not easy to pen scripts for big stars. Nagarjuna is a superstar, so I wanted to make a big action adventure with him. When I narrated the script, he found it interesting and would be joining shooting from October or November, said Veerabhadram.

The director wants to keep his film close to the real life, so he would shoot in actual locations and incorporate various unknown aspects of Dawoods life into his script. I gathered information about Dawood from books and through cops in Mumbai and Dubai. We incorporated his style of dealing with clients, his three-tier security cordon, the very select places he reportedly visits and his swanky lifestyle a kind of a new-age don who ruled the world, he added. Richa Gangopadhyay will add the heroine part to this film.
