When I first heard about Nagarjuna acting as ‘Sai Baba’, I was little scared. As he mentioned in many interviews he was also kind of not thinking about it too much and scared too as he rightly mentioned that he had played the roles of a Bhakthudu (Annamayya and Sri Ramadasu), but now he had to play the role of a Godly person. Sai Baba is prathyaksha Daivam for millions of people. Several years ago in an interview, for a question of playing the role of Christ, he answered that he wouldn’t as he did not want to play with the belief of millions and millions of people. I admired his decision as people have their own images of their ishta daivam and it is a very sensitive issue. But now I really do not know what inspired him to play the role of Sai Baba. I was awestruck looking at some of the stills yesterday – that too on Guru purnima day. I immediately posted this picture (I really loved this picture – very serene, I get goosebumps whenever I look at this picture) on facebook, and instantaneously I received 2 likes
I really can’t wait for Keeravani garu’s music and the movie of course. In the press meet, when Keeravani garu mentioned about one song on Sai Baba they have started composing from ‘Allari Mogudu’ time and finally it found its apt place shows how Baba plans and makes things happen (as it has been experienced by many of the devotees and the same thing has been mentioned in Sai Satcharithra)
Naaku entho ishtamaina Nagarjuna nenu anukshnam prardinchae Baba roopamlo ravadam is a dream come true. As he mentioned about finding Baba’s vigraham in his house and other incidents (antha sai mayam) and analysed the whole thing as a spiritual experience, I wish and pray that the movie would be a spiritual experience not only to Baba’s devotees but to general audience also.
In this context, I can’t help but to post one picture posted by RajMouli garu on twitter with the caption Eega on Shirdi Sai’s hand with this picture. I do not know whether it is a promo to ‘Eega’ or to ‘Sai Baba’. Anyways, it is a nice picture.
Wishing for Baba’s blessings on the entire team…
