Actor Akkineni Naga Chaitanya is excited and nervous ahead of shooting for the first time with his grandfather and father in upcoming Telugu comedy-drama Manam. Chaitanya will shoot with his family members here Sep 9. It also features Chaitanya's grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao and father Akkineni Nagarjuna. It is touted to be the first family multi-starrer in Telugu.
Talking to IANS, Naga Chaitanya spilled the beans on experiencing jitters. The young actor said, "I'm quite excited and nervous at the same time. I'm sure shooting few days together with my grandfather and dad will ease my tension because facing them together before the camera will be totally different from what it is at home."
Vikram Kumar of 13B and Ishq fame will helm this project, which will be produced by Akkineni home banner. The film also features Shriya Saran and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in important roles. It is reported that the three members from Akkineni family will reprise their real life relationship on screen as well.
In Indian cinema, only the Kapoor family - Prithvi Raj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor - have featured together in Hindi film Kal Aaj Aur Kal. Now, Akkineni family would be the second to be featured together on screen.
