King Nag, who is presently enjoying the success of ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’, shared the screen with Karthi for ‘Oopiri’. As per the sources from Film Nagar, Nag had completed is part of shooting in the film. However, he did not reveal any of his future projects on hand. As Nag is supposed to be free, Dil Raju had approached him and tried to impress him with a subject prepared by director Venu Sriram. It may be mentioned here that both of them had earlier met Raviteja with the same subject titled ‘Yevado Okadu’ and that was rejected by the latter. When Dil Raju and Venu Sriram met Nagarjuna, he accepted to do that role, provided certain changes were made in the final script. So Dil Raju doesn’t want to make it official since Venu Sriram has to make the necessary changes and narrate the final script to Nag, as he had a different image than Raviteja. It is worth to remind that Dil Raju has the talent and knack to convince another hero for the same subject and it was proved with the story of ‘Krishnashtami’. Though the story was prepared keeping Allu Arjun in mind, it was finally finished with Sunil stepping into the shoes of Allu Arjun in this movie.
