Rana Daggubati ACK Alive centre Established in 10,000 square feet
Daggubati, who conveyed the world to his role with his job as the miscreant in SS Rajamouli’s masterpiece Baahubali, has collaborated with Future Group and Amar Chitra Katha to achieve Amar Chitra Katha Alive – a cutting edge learning centre spread more than 10,000 square feet for craftsmanship and plan, fundamental abilities, performing arts and Vedic science and morals.

The courses extend from basic courses like Photography, Creative Writing, and Theater to ones like Vedic Mathematics, Tarot reading, and even Kalaripayattu – Indian military workmanship that began in Kerala.
“The centre offers an all age group learning. You can come at any age or any time of your convenience and pick up a program that you like,” Rana Daggubati told Business Insider.
Daggubati who has been engaged with legendary films like Baahubali understood that there was no brand holding together every one of the narratives that India’s mythology together like Amar Chitra Katha did. Discussing how the association occurred, he stated,

Meanwhile, Hyderabad has an audience which still has great respect for ACK and still has a large readership too,” said Daggubati.
The bringing of ACK Alive additionally had a personal association with Daggubati. The middle is today based on Daggubati’s past office space.

However, through the majority of his work, there’s one normal topic – narrating.
