I had great passion on films right from my childhood
I had great passion for films and acting right from my childhood and hence I entered the film industry. I used to play stage shows since I was 10 years old. I used to participate in drama competitions in school.
I have strong faith in god
I was born and brought up in Tirupati. I used to climb Tirumala hills by foot on every second Saturday. I continued the same for 10 years. I have strong faith in god.
I learned dances
I used to attend America Telugu Association and North America Telugu Association programs frequently. I have learned Kuchipudi dance to perform on the stage. I have learned Salsa and Samba dances as well.
Cinema is an art
I earned fame as a Neurologist doctor and reached top range. Not only fame but also earned profits. Later I entered the film industry. Cinema is an art, I don’t look it as a business.
We must think before work
We must keep full concentration while penning scripts, dialogues and while designing a characterisation. Through that we can get mental peace. I will get self-satisfaction through films. Due to this, I have been living a healthy life.
My acting career began with a Kannada movie
My acting career began with a Kannada film. A Kannada movie’s shooting took place at my home. Then I played a small roe in that film. After that I played villain in the same director’s another film. Later I entered into Tollywood.
‘Chandrahas’ had earned good recognition to me
My first film in Telugu is ‘Prema Yanamaha’. I got appreciations from my family members and I won Nandi Award.
I give importance to the story
I introduce new people through my every film. I always give importance to the story. If they come up with impressive scripts, I will surely produce it under other’s direction. If the script is very impressive, I will surely take big projects as well. I like to do mythological films. If everything goes well, I will surely bring mythological films in future.
‘Tik Talk’ will provide 100% entertainment
‘Tik Talk’ is fully loaded with entertainment. Comedy in the film will surely will leave audience in splits. There is a romance in the film, but without any obscenity. There are two heroine in the film, one is hero’s maradalu character and the other is modern girl character.
I am sure the film will impress everyone
The film is blended with all elements like suspense, thrilling and horror which will impress all sects of audience. I am extremely confident that the film will become big success.
I believe in 'Service to mankind is service to god.'
The greatest service is the social service. As a doctor, I am already giving service to people. I am giving treatment to the poor people for less amount. All these services are for my self-satisfaction.
It’s the most unforgettable and wonderful experience
‘Hope’ is a good message oriented film in my career. I made that film only for the society. Ramanaidu garu played the lead role in that film directed by Sathish. It’s an unforgettable and wonderful experience that I have produced the film which has legendary producer Dr. D Ramanaidu played the lead.
