Patala Pallaki Durga Interviews Sri Akkineni Nageswara Rao 1 of 2

Durga’s interview with Sri Akkineni was well received by TORi listeners. Kudos to her dedication and passion. My apologies for not posting it on TG sooner.

Her original FaceBook post on this interview.

Dear listeners, we are celebrating the 3rd anniversary of Patalapallaki on TORI, also celebrating the 88th birthday of great actor, Natasaamrat, A. Nageshwar Rao garu on Sept.20th. To bring you a special program we are airing the Exclusive Interview with Dr. Akkineni Nageshwar Rao garu done by me on Sept.25th, Sunday at 12pm. Please don’t forget to listen to the program and pass on the word to your friends and families, I’ll appreciate it very much.

This is part 1 of 2 of the interview

  1. Durga garu,
    I downloaded the interview parts and enjoyed listening to one of the greatest personalities AP had produced. ANR may not have mass following, partly his own conviction that ‘natana’ is an art, and do the best you can.
    He shares some of his beliefs and while doing so, he does with elegance, honesty and without any boast.

    KVReddy, Pingali and Nagareddi & Chakrapani produced ever enjoyable movies and all time hits. In contrast, Adurti, Athreya and Akkineni or Jagapati Pictures, Suresh Movies highly relying on Athreya produced many real life pictures.

    While ANR has mentioned 50% of his fame goes to Ghantasala, one can equally put no less contribution of Athreya in making ANR songs and dialogues classic, philosophical that continue to pound the sensitive hearts of many Telugu people across the globe.

    We must thank you Durga garu, for your efforts in producing yet another wonderful interview. Thanks due for TORI too for continuing to put resources to produce good programs.
