Little did he know that when Aamir Khan recently traveled to Hyderabad to promote the upcoming film release of his Laal Singh Chaddha co-star Nag Chaitanya, ‘Love Story’, he would end up stumbling over some little things about his own film! Nag Chaitanya’s Love Story, which comes out on the same day as his grandfather’s film (Akkineni Nageswara Rao), which Prema Nagar released exactly 50 years ago, was already an emotional and proud moment for the Akkineni family.
To everyone’s surprise, Nag Chaitanya linked another peculiarity of fate to a film made by his grandfather. At a dinner that Nagarjuna and his family held after the promotional event for Aamir, Nagarjuna discovered that the character played by his son in Laal Singh Chaddha was called “Bala Raju”. He was pleasantly surprised and also emotional, because that was the name of an iconic character that his own father had played in the film of the same name – “Balaraju” more than 70 years ago!
Everyone baked a cake to celebrate this special family moment that will also see two releases in a row (Love Story and Akhil Akkineni’s Agent). On the other hand, Aamir Khan’s LSC is one of the most anticipated films and will hit theaters this Christmas this year.
