A day after the grand reception of Tollywood's megastar Nagarjuna's son, major fire broke out at Annapurna studios that is owned by him. Four fire trucks took about two hours to extinguish the blaze completely, police said. Another report states that Chiranjeevi's upcoming film -Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy's sets incurred serious damage as well.

A Times of India report stated, that the house that was part of Manam got destroyed in the fire. However there is no confirmed news on the same.


The exact cause of the blaze was yet to be ascertained. Actor and managing director of the studios Akkineni Nagarjuna said the set was very close to the family as it was where his father Nageswara Rao spent his last days. The studio was named after the veteran actor's wife - Annapurna Akkineni.

It mainly produces and distributes Telugu films and also provides various production facilities, including sound stages for set construction, outdoor sets, editing, dubbing and digital intermediate suites.
