At a time when actors and filmmakers like to blow their own trumpets and go to any length to publicise their films by endorsing fake box-office numbers, Nani has stunned one and all with his candid confession about the failure of his last release, Krishnarjuna Yuddham, which features him in dual roles. Directed by Merlapaka Gandhi, the film released amid high expectations on April 12 and it featured Nani as a playboy rockstar from Prague as well as a happy-go-lucky guy from a small village in Chitoor. The film was unanimously panned by critics and audiences alike, ending Nani’s success streak after blockbusters such as Nenu Local, Ninnu Kori and MCA.
