The session provided for a fun filled afternoon with the actor who was there to promot e his upcoming Telugu flick Naa Ishtam' over a cup of coffee at T he Lounge in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad .
It was an entertaining afternoon with Rana sharing behind the scenes moments and various anecdotes that took place during the making of the movie.

Rana revealed how he absolutely loves coffee and can 't d o without his daily fix of the brew. What caught everyone by surprise was when Rana showcased his barista skills, brew ing a hot cuppa but ofcourse with a little help from the café's experienced br e wmaster s . He said, I have been addicted to coffee since the days I used to work on special effects, a kettle of coffee was always by me and used to continuously sip coffee. Don't remember when I had my first coffee, but ten years ago I was even allowed to have coffee, both my parents don't have coffee or tea. I prefer hot coffee but in a hot weather like this go for a cold coffee. I generally prepare coffee for myself but became a bit conscious in the presence of media here.
Speaking on the movie Rana shared, Naa Ishtam is about a young couple in love. And like all love stories you will find elements of laughter and romance , elements which are easily visible should you visit your local Lounge cafe . So w hat better place than T he Lounge itself to speak about the film. I am a big fan of T he Loun ge and love its offerings with black coffee made by alternate brewing techniques being my favorite . V ery often when I visit the café, I find a budding love story that makes me smile . The café is a character all by itself that fits in beautifully with the movie and connects with the audience that we want to reach out to.
Naa Ishtam is slated to release in theaters on March 23, 2012 .
