A triangular love story directed by Trikoti, it was about a son and father falling for the same girl. The Hindu wrote about his performance, “Naga Shaurya proves yet again that he’s one of the best among the newer lot of actors. He brings in the required innocence of a teenager and shows his anguish and helplessness in the later portions effectively”. Shaurya final release of the year was Lakshmi Raave Maa Intiki alongside Avika Gor. His next release was the 2015 film Jadoogadu under the direction of Yogie opposite Sonarika Bhadoria.

In 2019, Shaurya’s only release was Oh! Baby alongside Samantha Akkineni. The film, which received positive reviews, grossed more than $1 million at the United States box office. His 2020 thriller film, Aswathama, produced by his home banner Ira Creations was a profitable venture.
