Though Nag has always been into fitness, he is equally passionate about food.

That's why he started two restaurants -- N Grill and N Asian -- a few years ago.

Nagarjuna has always maintained a cordial relationship with the other stars, whether it's wishing Chiranjeevi on his birthday or congratulating Amitabh Bachchan on his National Award win for Piku.

Nag is like a friend to his sons Chaitanya and Akhil, and the trio often take holidays together.

In a recent interview, he mentioned he is happy that they have found their soul mates and would not want to miss the fun of two weddings!

Three generations of the Akkineni family -- ANR, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya -- came together in Vikram Kumar's blockbuster Manam. This is only the second film family to feature in a film, after the Kapoors in Kal Aaj Aur Kal.

This year the superstar achieved yet another enviable feat. 

His film Oopiri, co-starring Karthi and Tamannaah Bhatia, which released this year, became the 17th Telugu film to cross the million-dollar mark in the United States.
