Hyderabad: Renowned Telugu actor Chiranjeevi presented the Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR) National Award to veteran actors Sridevi and Rekha at an event held at Annapurna Seven acres on Sunday. Instituted by the Akkineni International Foundation, the award will be presented annually to the celebrities to honour their decades of contribution to Indian cinema.

It was a trip down the memory lane for all present — filmmaker Boney Kapoor, who received the award of behalf of his late wife; Chiranjeevi, who was the chief guest at the function and Nagarjuna in whose father’s name the award has been instituted.

In her acceptance speech, Rekha recalled her association with ANR and said she considered this honour from the Telugu film industry as a homecoming. “Annapurna Studios is like my home production and it feels glad to have received this honour alongside Sridevi, who is my little sister and an actor par excellence. I did a Telugu film titled Amma Kosam for my mother and now, I’m here to thank my another mother, Annapurna Studios.”

Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor broke into tears after accepting Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR) National Award on behalf of his late wife and English Vinglish actor Sridevi.

“I’m sure she (Sridevi) would have felt humbled to receive this award and I accept this on her behalf with humility,” he said at an event held at Annapurna Seven Acres here on Sunday.

ANR Awards Committee chairman and industrialist T. Subbarami Reddy, actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, his wife Amala, and several prominent members of the film industry graced the occasion.

Titled Radhe Shyam, the first-look poster shows a fairy-tale-like photo of Prabhas and Pooja Hegde engaging in a dance routine. The poster looks royal with Prabhas and Pooja dressed in a regal way.

Prabhas took to his Instagram space and shared the poster. He wrote, “This is for you, my fans! Hope you like it. #Prabhas20FirstLook #RadheShyam (sic).” Radhe Shyam is touted to be a period love story, which has its main story revolving in Europe. It is being reported that Prabhas will essay the role of a fortune teller and Pooja Hegde will be seen as a princess. The film has been creating buzz for about two years now. After the makers wrapped their schedule in Georgia, the filming process has been brought to a halt owing to the ongoing pandemic.

Grapevine has that Prabhas has shed close to 10 kilos in order to achieve a thinner look for the film. Given that Prabhas’ previous movie Saaho received lukewarm response amid the huge hype, fans are desperately waiting to see the Baahubali actor on the big screens. Produced by UV Creations on a mammoth budget, the film will be released in multiple languages including Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam. It is believed that the film will hit the screens in 2021.
