When in dilemma, I run my scripts through dad: Naga Chaitanya

Chennai: Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, son of Akkineni Nagarjuna, admits that he doesn`t mind consulting his father about film projects whenever he is in doubt. However, he says he signs a film only once he is truly convinced about it.

"Dad has been my guiding force. Whenever I am confused about choosing a script, I discuss it with him. However, I have said `no` to scripts he agreed to, while he has said `yes` too for scripts I have turned down. We have this mutual understanding that works between us," Chaitanya said.

"The reason sometimes I have said `no` to scripts that were cleared by him is because I need to be convinced before I take up a project. I just can`t do a film because my fans would love to see me in it," he added.

The 26-year old says the only advice he has received from his father is "do what you love".

"That`s the only advice he has ever given me. I have been following it religiously. My father and my grandfather always watch my films and share their feedback with me. It helps me a lot in my own career," he added.

Chaitanya is currently working alongside his father and grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao in upcoming Telugu family comedy `Manam`.

Meanwhile, he is awaiting the release of Telugu action-drama `Auto Nagar Surya`. He also has two Telugu films in the offing.
