Only great minds can think great and talented people only can identify other talented persons around. This is proved in the case of veteran director K. Raghavendra Rao and Megastar Chiranjeevi. Isn’t that exciting? here is the complete story on this…just read on.
We were aware that ‘Pranam Khareedu’ is the film which launched Chiranjeevi as an actor in Telugu Film Industry. Veteran filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao had been instrumental in giving a platform for a 23-Year-Old to prove his mettle.
When Kranthi Kumar met Raghavendra Rao, The Seasoned Producer informed to the Filmmaker that Chiranjeevi was under consideration to play one of the five leads in ‘Pranam Khareedu’. Upon finding lot of intensity in Chiru’s eyes, KRR asked Kranthi Kumar to immediately sign the youngster for the movie. “Frankly speaking, I anticipated the success of Chiranjeevi as an actor much before his rise Super Stardom or Megastar,” claims Raghavendra Rao.
Three movies enough to show their successful combination and the movies are Rowdy Alludu,Gharana Mogudu and then comes the top film in Chiru’s career Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari.
Had Raghavendra Rao not suggested Chiranjeevi to Kranthi Kumar,and lets assume if Kranthi Kumar didn’t encourage Chiru,what could be the loss that Tollywood have been suffered? Better…lets not even think of it.
