It’s hard to not talk or post about something that you love too much. That’s particularly the case with any series or movie that one gets mesmerised with, something witnessed with the recent international releases ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Game of Thrones.’ Closer home, it is Telugu film ‘Jersey’ that has not just got audiences, but even celebrities going gaga over it. The Nani-starrer cricket drama has received praises galore from ‘Baahubali’ stars Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati, SS Rajamouli as well as Jr NTR and Allu Arjun.
Anushka, who rarely posts any update on social media, was the latest to share on Tuesday that she was speechless after the experience. The actress conveyed love for Nani by terming it as a ‘truly fan moment’. The ‘Bhaagamathie’ star also conveyed her gratitude to director Gowtham Tinnanuri and the other members of the team.
A week back, ‘Baahubali’ maker Rajamouli had called ‘Jersey’ ‘Heart warming and joyful’. The director also praised Tinnanuri for ‘superbly written, crafted and directed scenes’ and called it a movie ‘everyone involved can be proud of’. And he also conveyed his love his ‘Eega’ actor Nani ‘Babu’.
Rana was the star attraction at the success meet of the movie where he revealed that he cried after watching the movie. “All my life, I have never understood some basic things like cricket, marriage, girls and kids. But even I got emotional and cried when I watched Jersey.”
The ‘Dum Maro Dum’ star called Nani an inspiration, “Nani, what a performer you are. This guy inspires me every day and I see him thrice a week, but he always loves cinema and that has inspired me. Keep flying this way.”
Praising the director, he said, “You are a story teller and your Jersey touched everyone.” The actor even said he was a fan of lead actress Shraddha Srinath since watching her ‘U-Turn’ movie. He even posted a snap of the special memento the team gifted him.
Previously, other Tollywood stars like Jr NTR and Allu Arjun had also raved about the movie. The latter termed it as an ‘outstanding film’ that took him on a ‘roller coaster ride’ and how Nani ‘hit the ball out of the park with a stellar performance!’
Jr NTR called the movie ‘heart touching’ and Nani’s ‘best film.’
