ana Daggubati comes from a line of greats. His grandfather is production mogul of Andhra Pradesh, D Rama Naidu, and his father is producer Suresh Babu. He is also the nephew of actor Victory Venkatesh. Though he began his career as an animator and made a name for himself in the field of post-production, he's now moved on to acting in a search for self. We caught up with Rana on the sidelines of the FICCI conclave in Chennai. Excerpts from an interview:
Did you always want to become an actor?
I thought of becoming an actor only two years ago - after I sold Sprit [his animation company] to Prime Focus. I began as an artist, an animator, and my dabbling became a big corporation. But that was not what I had envisioned.
I got interested in acting because I wanted to do something that was all me, something where I had control over my Intellectual Property [IP].
