#AVMTriva: The makers share unknown facts about Megastar Chiranjeevi

AVM Productions is one of the most reputed production houses in the South Indian film industry. They produced over 300 films in multiple languages and worked with many of the existing Superstars like Rajinikanth and Chiranjeevi. Aruna Guhan, the fourth-generation producer at AVM Productions, has shared an unknown fact about Megastar Chiranjeevi.

After 1976 the production house didn’t produce films for a few years, and its founder A.V. Meiyappan passed away in 1979. Before passing away, he told his sons that he wanted to produce movies again, but that didn’t happen. Hence the sons of A.V Meiyappan decided to release one film before their father’s one-year anniversary, and they approached Megastar for the movie Punnami Naagu.

Megastar was too busy at that time and was also a newly married. But upon hearing the reason, Chiranjeevi gave his nod. Though his call sheets were unavailable, Chiru used to shoot for Punnami Nagu in the evenings.

Aruna Guhan also shared that it was Chiranjeevi who named the movie Punnami Nagu and that it was the highest-grosser for AVM Productions in Telugu at that time and broke many existing records.
