Well, as they say, ‘Desperate times call for desperate measures’.
That certainly seems to be the case with the makers of ‘Manam’.
Nagarjuna, who plays one of the leads in the movie alongside other two generations of his family in ‘Manam’, is leaving no stone unturned to create buzz around the release of this film.
Nagarjuna has now pulled a ‘pigeon out of the hat’!
He has decided to hold a special screening for 700 senior citizens from the city for free of cost.
‘Manam’ touted as Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR)’s last work will be screened for ANR fans. The makers too are excited for this screening.
Watch Manam for free campaign was launched on a popular social networking site.
Meanwhile, Nagarjuna has also arranged a grand premiere of his film in Prasad’s Imax on the 22nd of May, a day before the worldwide release of the film.
Set in the period of 1920-2013, ‘Manam’ is a period drama cum Love story which justifies the presence of the three generations of Akkineni family in the film.
‘Manam’ stars the three generations of the Akkineni family- Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Akkineni Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya in larger-than life roles.
Samantha and Shriya Saran are playing the female leads in the film.
Directed by Vikram Kumar (of ‘Ishq’ fame), ‘Manam’ has music composed by Anoop Rubens.
Well, only time will tell if this gesture of Nagarjuna is able to pull the audiences to the theatres!
