It's a well known fact that Rajamouli and Nagarjuna, who had earlier worked together in Rajanna, have mutual admiration for each other. But it looks like S S Rajamouli is totally in awe of Nagarjuna after watching Shirdi Sai. Nagarjuna has been receiving rave reviews for his performance in the film, but Rajamouli has gone a step ahead and compared his performance with that of NTR's performance as Lord Sri Krishna. "one of the best examples of an actor transforming COMPLETELY into the role.Hats off to nagarjuna garu as SaiBaba. For me it is as good as Ben kingsley transforming into Gandhi and Peddayana tranforming into SriKrishna. I think Nag is destined for much much more. Proud&Respect!!," he posted on Twitter. K Raghavendra Rao has directed the film and M M Keeravani had composed the music. A Mahesh Reddy had produced the film.
