Nani Reveals He Got Drunk During Dasara Shoot To Get His Character’s Look Right; ‘Director Wanted The Eyes To Look Red’
Some actors tend to go the extra mile just to get their characters right, even if they have to get drunk on the sets. South star Nani is one of the very few actors who likes to get into the character’s skin and he even got drunk while shooting for Dasara. 

The upcoming action-adventure is all set to release this weekend and the film sees the popular Telugu star transform into an action hero, something that he does not do very often. The actor was recently in Delhi to promote the film where he got candid about the film, the experience of shooting it in coal mines, and more. ALSO READ | Dasara FIRST LOOK OUT!

A DNA report quoted the actor saying, “Shooting for this film was really tough as it is made in the backdrop of the Singareni coal mines near Godavarikhani in Telangana. There was coal dust and doing the shoot in the midst of that was tough. The dust created congestion in my chest. I couldn`t sleep properly but now when the movie is complete it seems like everything was worth it. During the shoot we used to suffer but after the pack up and after looking at the outcome things seemed perfect. Yes, I must say one thing there was no fun situation at all during the shoot.”

Nani is known for his performance in hits like Jersey, Majnu, and Eega among others. Dasara is his most ambitious movie till now and the grandest in scale as well. The film also stars Keerthy Suresh, and the film is directed by debutant Srikanth Odela.


The actor also shared that he got into the skin of the character at times he drank alcohol. "Whenever the director wanted the eyes to look red, I tried real alcohol," he added.

Dasara is all set to be released in theatres on Friday, March 31. The film has started strong with its advanced bookings surpassing all of Nani’s previous releases.
