2018 is going to become a milestone and a landmark in Sumanth's life. Though there are many other lads in the Akkineni family who can play their grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Sumanth has been chosen and definitely, it is like an icing on a cake at this point of his career.
While shooting for the film, Sumanth went down his memory lane and felt nostalgic while getting dressed as his grandfather in the process of becoming him. He even traveled in his grandfather's last car while heading for the shoot of NTR on the first day. So emotionally he is attached to his grandfather and in fact all of us know this.
To become his grandfather, Sumanth lost five kilos and clean shaved his beard. He grew a lot of stubble from past few years and he got rid of it. He watched his grandfather's films and interviews, again and again, to learn what his mannerisms were. It is also said that it was difficult for Sumanth to pull off the role and yes, it was pretty challenging.
Sumanth has Subramanyapuram and Idham Jagath in his kitty to release.
