The movie unit of Manam had recreated Thespian Akkineni Nageswara Rao using Graphics and VFX for the family song in the movie. The movie unit had used footage of ANR from some of his old movies and real life to recreate the images for the song.
Nagarjuna personally supervised the VFX work of the song and the movie unit say it has come out very well. “The song will be a major highlight of the movie. Fans will enjoy it like anything”, said a source close in the movie unit. It is known that ANR breathed his last before this particular song is shot. The grand old man who even completed the dubbing from his bed during his last could not shoot for this song.
So, the movie unit had to resort for Graphics help to recreate him. Couple of days ago, Nagarjuna had announced that the movie will be releasing on March 28th. The shooting of the movie is complete and the audio release event will take place in the next one week. The makers are also planning to begin the promotional activities very soon.
