Around 2 years ago, Telangana chief minister KCR announced his plans to transform the two iconic film studios in Hyderabad - Ramanaidu and Annapurna Studios - into commercial centres. KCR also offered lands on the outskirts of Hyderabad to relocate both the studios.
However, Ramanaidu's son and senior producer Daggubati Suresh Babu has rejected KCR's proposal. "Yes, the government approached us with their proposal, but we rejected it. Ramanaidu Studios is my father's dream and pride and it's a big landmark. It's not easy to build a studio, but my father was very passionate about films, and struggled to build it up there," said Suresh Babu, talking to an English daily.
Suresh Babu further said in an emotional tone that he forever wants to see Ramanaidu Studios as his father's dream. On the other hand, all eyes are on Nagarjuna's response to KCR's proposal.
