Actor Akkineni left us all in despair, but he still finished all his part for Manam and the movie is only waiting for release now. That will be the last film we will all see ANR on the screen. The actor has acted in over 250 films in his career that spanned over seven decades.
And his son Akkineni Nagarjuna said that he wanted Manam to be the befitting adieus to the Dada Saheb Phalke award winner and the deceased thespian.
The actor breathed his last at age 89 and was battling intestinal cancer. A post from Nagarjuna’s official facebook page read: 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.”
We do hope that it will indeed be a farewell movie that’s so deserving to him!
