Our film industry and society have lost the Pole Star in the death of Akkineni Nageswara Rao, said Lok Satta Party national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today.

Dr. JP said, “Akkineni’s life and career spanned the most important phase in the evolution of our society. He wielded extraordinary influence in the world of arts and influenced three generations of Telugu people.

“Akkineni carried his fame and fortune with great ease, humility and rational approach to life. The values he espoused in both private life and public domain have been a source of inspiration to tens of millions of people.

“Akkineni’s life and work should be celebrated and not mourned. Despite serious terminal illness, he died as he lived, with dignity and equanimity.

“I join millions of admirers in paying a tribute to an extraordinary life,” said Dr.JP after a visit to Akkineni’s residence and conveying his condolences to the family members.
