Anaganaga Oka Nanna is a 12 minute long short film that tells the story of a not-so-ideal father and breaks gender stereotypes with the protagonist and her twin brother’s characters.
The film makes you to think the repercussions of their actions. The short film begins with a nine-year old child Riya facing difficulty in writing an essay on a ‘good father’. She asks her mother Siri to tell about the story of her father. Siri tells the story of a father who suppressed his children’s desires and Riya finds a way to turn the story into a positive one by writing on what if the father was different.
Nani makes a super-fun guest appearance after the end-credits with the clapboard revealing the working title of the film was ‘If Only’.
Nani shared the video on his social media and shared another video of how the film came to be. He added that he felt proud of the film made by his sister before leaving back to the US.
