I want 'Manam' to be a befitting send-off to my father: Nagarjuna

Chennai, Jan 29 : Actor Akkineni Nagarjuna says he wants "Manam", last film of his late father Telugu movie icon Akkineni Nageswara Rao, who was more than just a father to him, to be a befitting farewell.


Rao passed away Jan 22 due to intestinal cancer. He was 89-years old.

"I want his last film 'Manam' to be a befitting send-off to a man who was much more than just a father to me. He was on the sets of the film when he collapsed (last year). When they opened him up he was in the fifth stage of cancer. Until then he was in the pink of health," read a post from Nagarjuna on his official Facebook page.

Nageswara Rao had completed all the shooting but for one song.

"The film spans a period from 1920 to 2013. My father plays a 90-year old. Except that incomplete song he completed all the shooting," he posted.

"Fifteen days after surgery he was at home in bed when he said, 'Bring all the dubbing equipment and do my dubbing for 'Manam' before I get worse, or you will get a mimicry artiste to do my dubbing. He made sure we he completed the film. It's now being released on March 31st," Nagarjuna further posted.

Directed by Vikram Kumar, "Manam" also features Nagarjuna and his son Akkineni Naga Chaitanya. It's the first time actors from three generations of Akkineni clan worked together.
