There comes an end to the tale of a legend. His vivacious showpieces that branched towards a different genre of movies that runs up to 256 numbers was an incredible figure. A man who breathed cinema from his soul departs from this world finally after a long battle with cancer. Akkineni Nageswara Rao (91) passed away in his sleep around 2.12 a.m.
The veteran actor had openly invited media channels for an interaction in October 2013 and said that he has been diagnosed with cancer, but would live for 100 years with the prayers and wishes of his family and friends.
The entire film industry and everyone in the state is shocked on knowing about his demise. The body will be kept for few more hours at Annapurna Studios.
Akkineni gaaru completed shooting for his next film ‘Manam’ that features his song Nagarjuna and grandson Naga Chaitanya alongside him in lead role.
We as the members of Top 10 Cinema express our heartfelt condolence to the master of his own craft, who has entertained three generation of actors.
