A special postal stamp will be launched later today to commemorate Actor Nagarjuna’s 57th birthday. The stamp will feature a photograph of Nagarjuna standing in front of a mic. A stamp featuring the Taj Mahal has also been affixed to it.
The stamp pays tribute to Nagarjuna’s singer avatar. He recorded a track for the film Nirmala Convent after 17 years recently.
Nagarjuna’s sons – Actors Naga Chaithanya and Akhil, will launch the stamp later today. “This stamp articulates Telugu film industry’s music skills through the voice of versatile artist like Nagarjuna and his admiration for fine lyrics and music composition,” Naga Chaitanya and Akhil said in a statement.
According to reports, a total of 10,000 postal stamps have been printed.
Meanwhile, the Premam team and its hero, Naga Chaithanya have released an edited video of the Evarey song from the film.
