Raghupathi Venkaiah award 2007 to Tammareddy Krishna Murthy

IndiaGlitz [Wednesday, February 11, 2009]

With the govt. of AP announcing popular producer Tammareddy Krishna Murthy's name for prestigious Raghupathi Venkaiah award 2007, let's take a look into the long path he undertook before reaching this honorable stage in life.

Born in a remote village called Chinapalaparru in Krishna district of AP, from the very beginning he had a modern perspective, always service minded and an atheist by nature. He was fond of communist ethics and was actively participating in the works of Praja Natya Mandali. When forced to move away from AP, he landed in Chennai (then Madras) and worked as a tuition teacher for the children of cinema artists. Then he entered into films as a production executive.

Back in Hyderabad, he worked for many memorable movies made on Saradhi. Later, he started his own production house titled Ravindra Art Pictures and made 'Lakshadhikari' with NTR in lead as the first production, which was an outstanding success. Followed by this, he made 'Jamindar' with ANR and many memorable movies like 'Bangaru Gajulu', 'Dharma Data', 'Dattaputhrudu', 'Sisindri Chitttibabu' (Shobhan Babu), 'Dr.Babu', 'Iddaru Kodukulu', 'Chinna Nati Kalalu' (Krishnam Raju), 'Amma Nanna', and 'Love Marriage'. Even though he started his professional life as a famed producer his first preference is always social service.

Although his number of productions is less, the films supported Telugu industry in earnest and gave an upbeat push. Still active in his profession even at the age of 87, he participates in services with a social cause.

The film fraternity feeling happy upon selecting him for this prestigious Raghupathi Venkaiah award says it is an apt and well deserving choice.
