Nagarjuna took to the micro-blogging site to reveal that May 22 and May 23 are quite special for him as it marked the release of two of his blockbuster films - Annamaya and Manam, respectively.
The Manmadhudu 2 actor wrote, "Two dates I cannot forget may 22nd and may 23rd Release dates of two Unforgettable classic movies #annamaya #manam @Ragavendraraoba #vikramkumar (sic)."
Apart from the Akkineni family, Shriya Saran also played a pivotal role in the film. Manam is also special for the family and cine buffs because it is Akkineni Nageswara Rao's last film in his career spanning seven decades. He died of stomach cancer during the film's production.
