Movie lovers cannot forget Akkineni's generational entertainer Manam. The film directed by Viikram Kumar mesmerised all creating wonders with ANR, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya in important roles.
It is known that Harshavardhan penned dialogues for the film which created powerful impact. Harshwardhan speaking to scribes revealed that he opted out of the project under unforeseen circumstances.
Harshavardhan affirmed Vikram Kumar asked him to work for all his project after getting impressed with his work in Ishq. He said however when Vikram Kumar asked him to come immediately leaving all his assignments for Manam, he told him that he couldn't do so as he was already busy with Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde.
Harshavardhan informed that when he told the same to Vikram Kumar, he got angry and later tried numerous other dialogue writers including renowned ones. But with him not getting synced with anyone, he came back to him. He said Nagarjuna too loved the dialogues and scenes very much and added he was supposed to work for Vikram Kumar's 24 and Hello, but unfortunately he couldn't do so.
