It is a known fact that Akkineni Nageswara Rao attained immense popularity with the film Devdas. The film directed by Vedantam Raghavayya turned ANR into Nata Samrat. Subbaraman’s music,Samudrala’s lyrics and Ghantasala’s songs complimented ANR’s extraordinary acting.

However when the film is all set to complete 50yrs on June 26th, ANR said he is against his superhit Devdas! He says he is against remaking the film by the present filmmakers.

He felt its better not to touch his Devdas! He felt even if someone makes it better than the earlier one, they may not be successful in making a lasting impact.
