Akkineni Lives On Forever In The Hearts Of Telugu Audiences
It is writing on a stone that Akkineni Nageswara Rao is a legend, who could be remembered by the Telugu audiences forever. Not only the people of past and present generations, even the future generations could remember him as a great actor. Who will forget his birthday? The entire world knows that ANR was born on September 20. However, his grandson Sumanth had tweeted ‘A Happy Birthday to grandpa’ on May 8. Everyone surprised at the birthday wish that too from his grandson. But, he gave a clarification to his tweet. It may be recalled here that Nageswara Rao debuted as hero in ‘Sri Sitarama Jananam’ and the film had hit the screens on May 8 some 72 years ago. So, ANR used to say to his friends, well-wishers and relatives that it is his real birthday as he shot into fame as hero on that day and the film industry gave birth to a great actor like him on that day. Reminding that issue, Sumanth had tweeted a happy birthday and also posted ANR in that get-up in ‘Sri Sitarama Jananam’ movie.
Here is the exact tweet by Sumanth –– Sumanth @iSumanth
