I never really grew up with dreams of being a director. What happened was a lucky accident. I started off by directing commercials under the supervision of legendary director K. Raghavendra Rao garu. I moved on to T.V. serials and directed ‘Shanti Nivasam’, which became popular on E Tv.
My first break as a movie director came with the film ‘Student No 1′ , which had NTR in the lead role. That movie turned out to be a commercial success. My next film, ‘Simhadri’, took a while to materialise. I once again worked with NTR and the blockbuster success of the film turned out to be a major boost for our careers.
After a few commercial entertainers, ‘Magadheera’ came out in 2009 with Ram Charan in the lead role. That film is very special to me from a professional perspective as it went on to become the highest grossing Telugu Film of all time. I exposed myself to the fields of animation and special effects for ‘Magadheera’ and they now play a key role in my projects.
‘Eega’ came out in 2012 and that remains the most challenging as well as the most rewarding film in my career.
I started off in 2001 and made nine films so far. Fortunately, you have received them all very well. Here they are.
