Naga Chaitanya turned 35 on Tuesday and what's better than unveiling his first look as Chinna Bangarraju from his upcoming film Bangarraju as a way to celebrate his special day. Bangarraju marks Naga Chaitanya and his father Nagarjuna's third film together. On his son's birthday, Nagarjuna wished him by unveiling the "first look and style of Chinna Bangarraju" along with the film's teaser. Dressed in a printed yellow shirt and jeans, Naga Chaitanya looks full of life and jolly as he steps out of a house with a smirk on his face and sits on a bike. Sharing the teaser, Nagarjuna wrote: "Presenting our Chinna Bangarraju on his birthday" and added this for his son: "Love you ra." Replying to his father's tweet, the birthday boy wrote: "Thank you so much nana!" Bangarraju is the sequel to Nagarjuna's 2016 film Soggade Chinni Nayana but more on that later.
