'Manam' befitting farewell to my father: Nagarjuna
Actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, who is gearing up for the release Telugu family drama "Manam", says the film will give audiences one last opportunity to see his father and late actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao on the silver screen.
"This is my father's last film and people shouldn't miss the opportunity to see him on-screen one last time. The film will be a befitting farewell to my father," Nagarjuna told IANS.
"Manam", directed by Vikram Kumar, features actors from three generations of the Akkineni clan.
Besides Nageswara Rao and Nagarjuna, it also features the latter's son Naga Chaitanya.
"When we decided to act together in a film, we had come across a lot of scripts but nothing impressed us. Finally, when Vikram narrated this script, we were bowled over and realized it was what we were looking for," he said.
"Manam", which also features Shriya Saran, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Neetu Chandra and Raashi Khanna, is slated for worldwide release May 23.
Nageswara Rao died Jan 22. He was 91.
