Annapurna Studios announced that three AISFM(Annapurna International School of Film + Media) students will be introduced in their upcoming film Manam, one of the  most eagerly awaited film of Tollywood, where the three generations of the Akkineni family will be seen for the first time-Akkineni Nageshwar Rao, Akkineni Nagarjuna and Nag Chaitanya. The selected students, Kaushal Sharma, Srikar Chittarbu and Krishna Yadav are graduates of AISFM.

“I am really proud to announce the names of the students from AISFM who have been selected for this film. They have applied themselves throughout the six-month training course, learning the intricacies of acting, dance, diction as well as grooming,” said Nagarjuna. As the founder of AISFM, Nagarjuna expressed his satisfaction at the launch of the budding talents. Manam is very special to me. Not just because I am getting the opportunity to work with my father and son but also because it is giving an opportunity for these young actors to showcase their talent. Srikar, who completed his LLB and worked as a junior advocate before joining AISFM said that he was “lost and confused” until he joined this course. “I’m thrilled to get an opportunity to work with the Akkineni family,” said a visibly excited Srikar. Krishna had undertaken a short acting course and acted in short films, when he discovered the AISFM course. Kaushal, a B. Tech graduate was equally excited about the project. “It has just been five days since the shooting started and its already so overwhelming. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the shoot”, he said.
