Akkineni’s Hello Trailer silent satire on Nandi Awards
Akkineni family’s cult classic Manam, starring three generation of actors from the illustrious family, left an everlasting impression in the hearts of Telugu audience. However, the film didn’t get due credit in the recently announced Nandi Awards by the AP state. The film was named the second best film of the year after Legend.
While there has been a collective clamour from audience, media and many industry people that Manam rightly deserves to be awarded the Best Film in that year, Akkineni family remained phlegmatic and didn’t respond on the issue.
Now, they made a silent satire on the jury’s decision through Akhil’s Hello Trailer. At the start of the trailer, Hello is referred as a film from the ‘Makers of Manam – To which you awarded your hearts’.
Nagarjuna has ridiculed the awards by indirectly referring Manam as a film which might be ignored by the Awards Committee but won many hearts in Telugu states.
This insinuating remark from Nagarjuna has now become a talking point among audience and industry circles.
