It has been a while since the legendary Akkineni Nageswara Rao passed away and though he is no longer amidst us, his absence is not felt. This is because of the various things that keep happening in his memory. Now, the clock is ticking for ANR's birth anniversary on September 20th and it is being done in a grand way.
The Akkineni family has taken this as a very prestigious day and they are coming up with special programs and initiatives. From many years, ANR's birthday celebrations used to start from September 19th onwards and continue till 24th. This is because the number of people and organizations who wanted to felicitate and wish him are so many.
The famous venues like Ravindra Bharati and Tyagaraya Gana Sabha were booked for a week. Even this year, the same is happening and everyone is keen to make it much memorable than before. As for the home audience, ANR's last movie 'Manam' will be aired in MAA TV on that day.
