Annapurna Studios

A major fire accident took place in the Iconic Annapurna Studios on Monday evening, reducing the sets of Manam and Sye Raa to ashes. Fortunately, all the students fled the spot as soon as the fire engulfed the entire set and there are no casualties or deaths.

In a cruel twist of fate, a day after the Akkineni family threw a wedding reception for his son Naga Chaitanya and Samantha, a massive fire gutted an entire set of Annapurna Studios. Some students from the Annapurna film school were shooting a short film in the Studio. Another fire officer said a short-circuit may have caused the blaze, though the exact cause is being investigated. TV reports say that the sets have been completely burnt.


Annapurna Studios was established in 1975 by the late Telugu actor Nageswara Rao Akkineni. The handsome house set that was erected for Manam movie has been used for various other movies.

It primarily creates and appropriates Telugu films and and also gives different generation offices, including sound stages for set development, editing, open air sets, dubbing and digital intermediate suites. Four fire engines had to be deployed to bring the fire under control.
