"Manam" also features Chaitanya's grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao and father Akkineni Nagarjuna. It is touted to be the first family multi-starrer in Telugu.

"I'm quite excited and nervous at the same time. I'm sure shooting few days together with my grandfather and dad will ease my tension because facing them together before the camera will be totally different from what it is at home," Naga Chaitanya told IANS.
