It's after a hiatus of over 15 years that Nagarjuna is venturing into the Hindi film industry again. The daily quoted a source in the report saying, "Nagarjuna wanted to do a Hindi film from a long time, but was looking for an interesting project. He finally gave his nod to this one. He will join the Hindi film sets from Tuesday onwards in Mumbai".
