Telangana Minister KTR helps Vedam Nagaiah

(Vedam is a 2010 Telugu language Indian drama film written and directed by Krish, starring Allu Arjun, Manoj Kumar Manchu, Anushka Shetty, Manoj Bajpai, Saranya Ponvannan, Deeksha Seth, Lekha Washington, and Siya Gautham. Broadly falling into the Hyperlink cinema genre, the film was critically acclaimed, receiving several accolades including four Filmfare Awards (Best Movie, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress) and had a decent run at the box office as well. Krish later remade the film in Tamil as Vaanam (2011), with Anushka and Saranya reprising their roles. It was also dubbed in Hindi as “Antim Faisla”)

Couple of days back, few Film Nagar folks have pointed out the plight of one Nagayya who acted as poor grandpa in Allu Arjun’s “Vedam” movie. He was seen begging on the roads of Film Nagar and everyone felt that governments of both AP and Telangana should respond over this. Also they felt even Telugu Film Industry and Movie Artists Association should come to his rescue.

During the #AskKTR session a couple of days back, few film lovers have taken the issue of Vedam Nagayya to T-CM’s son KTR and he asked them to provide his contact details. And then, the Telangana IT Minister responds like a true leader.

“Met ‘Siricilla Ramulu’ aka Nagaiah Garu today. Handed over Rs.1 lakh as assistance from my side. Also arranged for old age artist pension through Government. Spoke to Rajendra Prasad, president of MAA to assist him. Nagaiah incidentally is native of Guntur”, said KTR, after handing over the cheque.

One word for him says Film Lovers, “KTR, you stole the hearts man”

Responding on this, actor-producer Lakshmi Manchu said, “Hats off ram. I am so happy with all the work you are doing. Been following your work religiously.This gesture took my breath away”
