Nagarjuna to do his bit for film preservation & restoration

Akkineni Nagarjuna has said that he will do his bit for the cause of film preservation and restoration.  Viacom18 and Film Heritage Foundation have been in this area, "creating awareness for the pressing need to preserve and restore both films and film-related photographic and paper materials to future-proof our cinematic heritage".  Annapurna Studios has decided to host a preservation and restoration workshop in December this year.  

Speaking about the endeavour, Nag says, “Here at Annapurna Studios, we have created a museum just for the countless awards my father won in his lifetime. When you look back on the incredible films ANR garu made,  it is a magnificent body of work that we must keep alive for future generations to appreciate the work of a truly legendary actor of Indian cinema. If he were alive today, he would have been very proud that Annapurna Studios have partnered with Film Heritage Foundation and the best archives around the world to educate and train future film archivists who will go forward to save India’s film heritage."

The 'Manmadhudu-2' actor adds, "I am looking forward to welcoming the participants and the international faculty of eminent film archivists to Annapurna Studios as they come together to help us save our film heritage.”
