Rana Daggubati teams up with Amar Chitra Katha for ACK Alive
The Baahubali: The Beginning actor has teamed up with Amar Chitra Katha (ACK) and Kishore Biyani of Future Group to create the centre.
On his latest venture, Rana said in a statement: "I discovered Amar Chitra Katha like the rest of India. These comics were my favourite storytellers in childhood. Soon enough, I realised that these weren't just stories or comic books, these were carriers of our ethos and values."
For him Amar Chitra Katha's comics were a "route for him to discover a lot more about the multi-dimensional culture this land has nurtured over the decades."
He promised that ACK Alive will "become a tool in carrying forward the Indian legacy - not just through stories, but with art, sciences and life skills entrenched in our roots."
Rana also announced about the centre on his social media by uploading a video in which he gave his followers a walkthrough of the place.
Retweeting his tweet, filmmaker Karan Johar shared his love for Amar Chitra Katha. He said: "I grew up on Amar Chitra Katha! The treasure trove of stories."
ACK Alive will open its doors on Sunday for the public with a series of free fun-filled sessions till April 14. It will also conduct a series of workshops and learning modules for children.
On the film front, Rana will next be seen in Housefull 4.
