Naga Chaitanya is an Indian Telugu film actor. He was born on November 23, 1986 to actor Akkineni Nagarjuna and his first wife, Lakshmi. Naga Chaitanya's grandfather, Akkineni Nageswara Rao is one of the stalwarts of Telugu cinema, with cousins Sumanth and Sushanth also being film actors. His maternal grandfather, D. Ramanaidu, is a famous producer in the film industry whilst his maternal uncle, Venkatesh is also one of Telugu cinema's biggest actors.
Naga Chaitanya was born in hyderabad but moved to Chennai with his mother after his parents split. He often visited his father in Hyderabad during his growing years. His initial interest was not in acting, he wanted to race cars and is still very good at it. But his father convinced him otherwise and talked him into acting to keep the legacy going, he was then sent to an acting school in Mumbai and subsequently to Hollywood Studios in California (USA) to learn dance and fights, before he made his debut.
Following legacy led by his family in films, Naga Chaitanya's debut was widely anticipated. After several rumours regarding his debut, during the audio launch of his father's King, Chaitanya was introduced to the film world and there his debut film was launched. Josh, directed by newcomer Vasu Varma and produced by Dil Raju pairs him opposite a fellow debutant Karthika Nair, daughter of Radha, the film did not fare too well but Naga Chaitanya's performance has been commendable for a debutant.
Prior to the release of his first film, he signed his second film with Indira Productions, which is to be directed by Gautham Menon and music will be given by Oscar Winner A.R.Rahman.Ye Maaya Chesave released on February 26th, 2010. Naga Chaitanya proved that he is a brilliant actor with his performance in the movie. His dialogue delivery and body language was highly authentic. Absolute top notch effort from him, he has matured as an actor tremendously from his first movie Josh and there seem to be no doubts that he will do wonders in the future. And with Ye maya chesave he is continuing the legacy of his father and grand father as most admired romantic hero, like the flicks Devadasu of ANR and Geetanjali of Nagarjuna.
