Nagarjuna made his Bollywood debut with the 1990 film Shiva. He has since worked in Hindi films like Khuda Gawah, Drohi, and Zakhm among others. His portrayal of Major Padmapani Acharya in LOC Kargil (2003) marked his last Hindi film before Brahmastra.
In a conversation with PTI last year, Nagarjuna shared why he has been away from the Hindi film industry for almost 20 years. He said, “I was getting incredible roles. (But) I am kind of a home bird. I like to live in Hyderabad. I always did very special roles in Bollywood. Whatever I have done right from the beginning, it was important for me to entertain people. All the roles that I did came looking for me, I never (went for them).”
