His first big hit was Akhari Poraatam, co-starring Sridevi, which ran for 100 days in 12 theatres. Geethanjali, a love story directed by Maniratnam, followed by Shiva an action film directed by Ram Gopal Varma, was highly successful and established him as one of the top heroes. During this phase of his career, he relished working with new directors such as Ram Gopal Varma in order to recreate his screen persona and enjoy certain creative energy through the fresh approach of these young directors. He also made his Bollywood debut with the Hindi remake of Shiva. Movies such as President Gari Pellam and Hello Brother gave him the status of a mass hero. After that Ninne Pelladutha, directed by Krishna Vamsi, appealed to a broad cross-section of people, both young and mature. The movie was a big success at the box office. Later, he took up the challenge of portraying Annamacharya, the legendary singer/poet of medieval times, in the movie Annamayya. It ran for 100 days in 42 centers and is one of the biggest hits in Tollywood. He won the National Award for this role in the Special Jury category.

Annapurna Studios Nagarjuna revived his father's production company, Annapurna Studios which has become one of the most successful production companies of recent times in Tollywood. He never hesitated to experiment when he produced films. He gave a chance to a newcomer who had no prior experience in movies to direct him. The newcomer didn't disappoint him and went on to become one of the finest directors in the Indian film industry. The director is none other than Ram Gopal Verma. Nagarjuna is also known for his swiftness in decision-making. After seeing a 10-minute rush of the director's film Gulabi, he agreed to work with Krishna Vamsi. His decision proved to be bang on target, as they made the blockbuster movie Ninne Pelladutha.
