Jan 23, 2014

The last rites of the legendary Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR) were completed a few moments back at the Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad, with state honors.

The legend's body was earlier kept for public homage at the Telugu Film Chamber and also at the Annapurna Studios and thousands of people paid their last respects to ANR. People braved long queues and the police and volunteers had a tough time controlling the surge of people. Many politicians, film personalities and other eminent people also paid their tributes.
The funeral procession started from the Film Chamber around 1 pm in the afternoon today (23rd January 2014) and passed through Jubilee Hills before finally reaching Annapurna Studios for the last rites. The actor's family, other eminent actors and many fans were a part of the final procession. 
The Telugu film industry didn't operate today, as a mark of respect to the deceased legend. 
May ANR's soul rest in peace.
