In the photo is Akkineni Nageswara Rao with his wife Annapurna several years ago at the monument of Love, Taj Mahal. We do not know the time of the photograph but going by their looks, it may be in ANR’s initial days in film industry. The little girls in their hands may be Saroja Akkineni and Naga Suseela (daughters of ANR). ANR built the Annapurna Studios on the name of his wife, Annapurna.

The 28 acres studio situated in the heart of Hyderabad is one of the first studios established here after the industry migrated from Chennai to Hyderabad. Annapurna breathed her last in 2011. Akkineni family built a memorial statue of her in the Annapurna Studio. It is known that ANR breathed his last in January this year. His last film, Manam went on to become a blockbuster recently.
