A major fire broke out at famous Annapurna Studios at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad.

Apparently, the movie sets that were made of wood, caught fire and the fire spread quickly. The studio belongs to actor Akkineni Nagarjuna. Manam is the last movie of Akkineni Nagarjuna in which his father Akkineni Nageshwar Rao played his last act.

According to officials, the accident took place between 5.30 pm and 6 pm on Monday. The Annapurna Studio staff has tried to extinguish but there could not extinguish the fire and save the assets. The latest we hear is that the movie set has been burned down.

Sources say that the fire was initiated due to the short circuit and the fire engines got the flames into control.

Manam was Nageswara Rao's last film before he passed away in January 2014.

As of now, the management of Annapurna Studio is maintaining a stoic silence. The Fire authorities later brought the situations into control and an investigation is on about the fire accident. The fire spread in no time and short circuit is expected to be the reason for the fire accident.
