The workshop covers script writing, basic camera operations, editing and sound mixing, with a focus on teamwork and creativity, said a statement by the school run by the family of legendary Telugu actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao.
“For many engineering students, the focus on technical studies and preparing for exams can squeeze out any time for creative endeavors. That’s why we have scheduled this workshop in the summer holidays, so that students can build their communication skills without impacting their studies,” said AIFSM president and popular Telugu actor Akkineni Nagarjuna..
Why Nagarjuna Is Delaying Manam?
One of the prestigious projects started by Annapurna Studios these days is a film that features the three generations of Akkineni heroes. Titled 'Manam', it got Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya as heroes. Here is an interesting information about it.
By this time, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya are supposed to start the shooting of 'Manam'. After the super success of 'Tadakha', Chaitu is right now sitting idle with no shooting to attend. But it is heard that because of his father it is happening this way. Actually the shooting is supposed to start by May 1st week only and Nag has intentionally avoided it. Responding on this Chaitu stated that his dad can't actually handle the heat wave that is taking toll on Hyderabad at the moment. Right now Nag is chilling out in Slovenia, Europe, shooting for the songs of upcoming movie 'Bhai'.
Chaitu made it clear that once Nag is back from his Europe schedule, the process of filming 'Manam' will be started. That's a good news for Akkineni fans who are enjoying the success of Tadakha anyway.
