Entire Akkineni family is emotionally attached to Manam film. It is the first multistarer film involving three generations of Akkineni family and is the last on screen appearance of ANR.
Thespian ANR breathed his last while shooting for the movie. He even dubbed for the film from his bed in his last days. He made public about his life taking Cancer to public during the shoot of this movie.
It is very tough to work with him on sets for the family members after knowing that his days are counted. Naga Chaitanya recounts one such incident. In the scene, Chaitanya was required to call ANR as ‘Musaloda’ (old man).
Chaitanya was reportedly emotionally down and unable to pull off the scene. His father, Nagarjuna had to stand beside him and convince him for the scene. Akkineni family is also eagerly waiting for the movie release along with the fans.
