Ahead of Akkineni Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya’s latest Sankranthi film release- Bangarraju , famous jewellery brand Kalyan Jewellers has partnered with Annapurna Studios to launch the ‘Bangarraju’ Men’s Jewellery Collection.

Talking about this association, Kalyan Jewellers brand ambassador & ‘Bangarraju’ lead, Akkineni Nagarjuna said in a video message, “My father has always been my inspiration, and this traditional look that I have recreated for the movie Bangarraju is a tribute to him – even the jewellery that I wear in the movie, is originally his. Ahead of the release of the film, this traditional look seems to have appealed to the audiences, and that is how Kalyan Jewellers came on board to recreate the Nana Garu’s haram designs.”
Talking about the announcement, Mr. Ramesh Kalyanaraman, Executive Director – Kalyan Jewellers said, “We consider it an honour to be able to reproduce the iconic jewellery pieces that once belonged to Nageshwara Garu. As a brand, we have always followed a hyper-local product and outreach strategy. We have encouraged our patrons to not only take pride in their traditional designs, but also to embrace them in style – and when it comes to style, there is none that does it as wonderfully as The King (Akkineni Nagarjuna) himself. This is our special Sankranti offering to our customers.”
Bangarajju was released on the occasion of Makar Sankranti on 14th January 2022 in theatres.
