In an interesting development, actor-producer Akkineni Nagarjuna is presenting 83, a movie based on 1983 world cup, in Telugu. The film traces the Indian cricket team's victory at the 1983 World Cup against West Indies which put India on the Global Cricket Map and thus creating history.
Since Nagarjuna and his sons Naga Chaitanya, Akhil have good interest for sports, Nag seems to have instantly connected with 83 and presenting the film in Telugu. However, the deal value isn't revealed by both parties. What is Nag's stake and other business details are not known yet.
