Sankarabharanam, Sithara, Swathi Muthyam, Swayamkrushi, Apadbhandavudu are the masterpieces produced by noted producer Edida Nageswara Rao. Let us remember him on his 85th Jayanti. From his college days, Nageswara Rao had a passion for acting. He reached Madras (Chennai) to follow his dreams. He appeared in small roles and worked as a dubbing artiste.
In 1976, with his friends support, Nageswara Rao undertook production works for Siri Siri Muvva and garnered huge success. Thereafter, he founded Poornodaya Movie Creations and produced Tayaramma Bangarayya which was also a hit. Next movie Sankarabharanam directed by kalatapswi K Vishwanath turned out to be an epic in Telugu cinema. Film Sagara Sangamam stars Kamal Hassan and Jaya Prada was a blockbuster hit. His next production Swathi Muthyam starring Kamal Hasan and Radhika was released in 1986, became a huge hit. Edida Nageshwar Rao has made many masterpieces but didn’t get recognition. So, it would be good if both the Telugu states governments commemorate him with awards.
