Akkineni family is coming together for the film Manam. This ambitious film is being directed by Vikram Kumar. The shoot of the movie has already commenced and senior actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao has started working for the film after a long period of break from acting.
Sources close to the makers have revealed that Manam is loosely based on 'Back to Future'. It is being said that Nagarjuna plays as son of Naga Chaitanya and Nageswara Rao as son of Nagarjuna! It would be really interesting how these actors pull off these role reversals on screen.
Buzz is that Nagarjuna goes back from future to help himself and his father. Some even say that the film is inspired by the popular children cartoon Doremon, in which the grandchild sends back his pet robot to help his father and himself.
Back to Future has already been remade in Bollywood in recent times with Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai in the lead as 'Action Replay'. But the film did not fare well at the box office. Let's wait and see how this film turns out!
