Nani made his debut with Ashta Chamma, which released in 2008. Nani as a young village head won the hearts of the audience who could make out that he was born to act. While we have seen many love stories in Tollywood, what made this film work is the chemistry between the two leads.

After a series of failures, he starred in Bhale Bhale Magadivoy, a romantic family entertainer packed with humor and loads of funny punch dialogues was a huge success and managed to get Nani back on track into the big leagues.

His second release of 2011 was Pilla Zamindar opposite Haripriya and Bindu Madhavi. It was a coming-of-age comedy-drama revolves around the story of a spoilt grandson of a landlord, who sets out to complete his education in order to inherit his grandfather’s wealth.

Paired opposite Nithya Menen in Ala Modalaindi, this 2011 rom-com was a huge hit. Casting the right actors for a film can break it, and in this case, this film proved it yet again. These two actors were so convincing in how they portray their romance that the audience has a hard time believing that they’re not together in real life. Undoubtedly, we can call it great acting and fantastic chemistry.
His next release Bheemili Kabaddi Jattu was a super hit. Nani’s acting was praised, and he seemed more confident on-screen. He and Saranya Mohan looked good together in the film, which released in 2010.
