FAM­ILY POWER

India Today - - GLOSSARY - by Mona Ramavat Fol­low the writer on Twit­ter@ suhani84

It’s the dream project of the star-stud­ded Akki­neni fam­ily. Three gen­er­a­tions of Akki­neni su­per­stars—Na­gar­juna, son Naga Chai­tanya and fa­ther A. Nageswara Rao, a vet­eran Tel­ugu ac­tor—have come to­gether for the first time in the Tel­ugu film Manam. The se­nior­most Akki­neni, who turned 90 this year, is play­ing the role of Na­gar­juna’s son in the film loosely based on the 1985 Amer­i­can sci­ence fic­tion com­edy Back-to-the-Fu­ture. Fam­ily projects seem to be flavour of the sea­son in Tel­ugu film in­dus­try. Another multi-star­rer from the Manchu fam­ily is on its way.
