Nagarjuna Then And Now

Akkineni Nagarjuna - Sakshi Post

Akkineni Nagarjuna is said to be born with a golden spoon to veteran actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao. Though everyone thought it would be an easy ride in his career, the sailing wasn't that easy even for him. He had his share of flops before being termed as King Nagarjuna and reach to top position.

The actor made his screen appearance as a child artiste in 1967 film Sudigundalu. Years later he debuted in Vikram as the main lead. Most of his movies had a decent run at the box-office but the game changer was Ram Gopal Varma's Siva both to him and the director, which is called as a cult film in Tollywood even today.
