ENTRY TO THE TELUGU FILM INDUSTRY:

Akkineni Nagarjuna (born August 29, 1959 in Chennai, India) is a popular Telugu Cinema actor and producer. He is the son of veteran actor, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, who was a popular actor in the 60's and 70's. Nagarjuna with his misty eyes, agile smiles, poise looks and soft-spoken nature, hoarded many lady buffs similar to his father Nata Samarat Akkineni Nageswara Rao, one of the kingpins of Telugu Cinema who also has many more number of female fans even today. Nagarjuna is a very frank and open person and this caliber in him brought him so many a friends and an ample reputation in the Film Industry. Nag's foray into films is an act of passion.

The celluloid scientist Nagarjuna was born on 29th August 1959. He made out his schooling in Little Flower School, Hyderabad. He graduated with an Engineering degree from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA.

"Vikram" (1986), his debutante film (a Telugu remake of Hindi Hero), made a splash at the hearts of youth. Being just 4 films old he proved that he can match his father's image as a tragedy king with a lovely film called 'Majnu'. He developed the strategy of inducting debutante directors to his films with Sankeerthana. Though this musical saga did not sustain at box-office, Nag has gone a step ahead as an actor.

He paired up with his legendry father Sr. Akkineni for "Collectorgari Abbai". But it was the midas touch of Aswini Dutt that proved Nag's Box-office credentials. For the first time he paired up with Sridevi, who has done innumerable films with Nag's father Nageswara Rao, in the film 'Akhari Poratam' that ran for 100 days in 12 centers.

It was "Geetanjali" that has taken Nag's image as a romantic hero to new heights. Deft direction by Maniratnam and crafty camera work by P.C.Sriram added to necessary gloss to the romantic image of Nag. If you think Geetanjali is a big hit, you are in a soup. Because the box-office magnitude of 'Geetanjali' appears minuscule compared to the stormy film that followed which has taken all the youth's heart away. 'Shiva' gave Nag much needed action hero image and Nag made inroads into the hearts of students. Ultimate winner of 'Shiva' is none but Ram Gopal Varma, a raw director. It was the Nag's risky decision to employ a video operator as the director for his home production that did the trick. All the scorning critics who criticized Nag for his decision to choose Varma during the production of film are silenced by it's stupendous success.
