Akkineni Nagarjuna was raised by his father, Nageswara Rao Akkineni, a well-known actor, and his mother, Annapoorna Akkineni; his brother Venkat is recognized for being a producer. As a little boy, he moved with his family to Hyderabad, where he went to the Hyderabad Public School, after which he attended the Little Flower Junior College. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at the College of Engineering, Guindy, where he completed only one year of his Bachelor of Engineering degree, before moving to Ypsilanti, Michigan, where he graduated with a BS degree in Automobile Engineering from Eastern Michigan University. Afterwards, he earned his MA degree at San Jose State University.

Akkineni’s acting career began in 1986, when he made his debut appearance in the title role in the film “Vikram”, directed by V. Madhusudhana Rao; this marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth as well as his popularity, as he won the Vamsee Berkeley Award for Best Actor. His next major role came in 1989, when he starred in the role of Prakash in “Geetanjali”, winning AP Cinegoers Award and Bharatamuni Award for Best Actor, and when he appeared in the leading role in “Shiva” in the same year, for which he also won Vamsee Berkley Award and Cinema Express Award.

At the beginning of the 1990s, Akkineni continued to line up successes, appearing every year in several film titles. Some of these were the role of Teja in “Jaitra Yatra” (1991), portraying Insp. Raja Mirza in “Khuda Gawah” (1992), playing Vinay in “Varasudu” (1993), and as Ravi Verma in “Hello Brother” (1994). Two years later, he was cast as Seenu in the film entitled “Ninne Pelladatha”, which earned him a National Film Award, Nandi Award and Filmfare Award South, and in the following year, he starred in the title role in “Annamayya”, which also earned him several significant awards, and increased his net worth by a large margin. By the end of the decade, he was also featured in such film titles as “Auto Driver” (1998), “Sitaramaraju” (1999), and “Azaad” (2000), among others.

The 2000s brought new roles for Akkineni, increasing further his popularity and net worth, firstly in the 2002 film “Santosham”, in which he portrayed Karthik, winning the Nandi Award for Best Actor. In 2005 came his next big role, as the title character in the film “Mass”, which also earned him the CineMAA Award for Best Actor, and in the following year, Akkineni starred in the role of Bhakta Ramadasu in a film entitled “Sri Ramadasu”, for which he won Nandi Award for Best Actor, both of which potentially contributed a lot to his wealth.

To speak further about his career, Akkineni won the role of Major Ravindra in the film “Payanam” in 2011, which he reprised in “Gaganam” later that year. He also appeared in the 2012 film “Rajanna”, which earned him South Indian International Movie Award as well as Nandi Award. Most recently, he was featured in “Manam” (2014), “Oopiri” (2016), and “Om Namo Venkatesaya” (2017). His net worth is certainly rising.

Additionally, Akkineni is also known as a producer, producing a number of films such as “Buchi Babu” in 1980, “Ninne Pelladatha” (1996), earning Best Feature Film Award in Telugu and Akkineni Award for Best Home viewing Feature Film, and “Prema Katha” (1999), also co-founding a production company called Annapurna Studios, alongside his brother. In 2002, he produced “Manmadhudu”, for which he won Nandi Award for Best Feature Film. Furthermore, he also produced “Super” (2005), “Uyyala Jampala” (2013), “Soggade Chinni Nayana” (2014), among others. Currently, he is filming “Untitled Project” and “Hello”, which will also contribute to his fortune.
