According to a report in India Today, Naga Babu is currently under home quarantine as per the doctor's advice. The actor who regularly participates in television shoots recently did an interview with his daughter Niharika Konidela as well.

Soon after Naga Babu had posted the message, a number of people took to the comments section to wish him a speedy recovery. Among those was Chiranjeevi's son-in-law Kalyan Dhev who wrote, "Speedy recovery Nagababai," with a smiley emoji.

According to Hindustan Times, Naga Babu had recently denied reports about a biopic being planned on his brother’s life. In the interview with TV9 that was cited by the publication, he said his brother lives a very content and complete life and even the minor struggles at the beginning of his career do not really warrant a film to be made on it.

Stating that the personal lives of celebrities like Savitri, Silk Smitha, and Sanjay Dutt were not peaceful and thus deserved to be made into films, he added, "My brother Chiru, on the other hand, leads a fantastic and complete life whether it is onscreen and off-screen."
