Even after that he worked as an assistant for some films. Director Indraganti Mohan Krishna, who had just seen him, approached him for a character in his upcoming film. At first he said no to the offer, but after he accepted it. Shooting of the movie stopped due to lead pair dates. With this, Nani and Swati, who were the second leads, were taken as the main leads and completed the film. The film was released and was a great success. Everyone who starred in this film got a good name. Nani's career also took a turn with that film. After that he did Ride, Snehithuda, Bhimili Kabaddi Jattu pictures.
