Boyapati Srinu developed interest in photography as his family owned a studio in Pedda Kakani. He worked as a free lance News Reporter for Eenadu in Guntur district. Later on he planned to start a small scale industry in Guntur’s Auto Nagar but was diverted by his cousin Posani Krishna Murali to Tollywood. Posani recommended him to Muthyala Subbaiah in 1997. He worked as Assistant director for films like Oka Chinna Maata, Gokulamlo Seetha, Pelli Chesukundam, Pavitra Prema, Annayya and Manasunna Maaraju.
After Gangotri, Boyapati approached Allu Arvind to narrate Bhadra story. Aravind liked it a lot and send him to Bunny for narration. However Allu Arjun took him to Dil Raju who immediately paid advance to Boyapati. Initially the script was planned for Prabhas and 8 months went in to the preparation of the bound script. As Prabhas is busy with Chakram for almost a year, Ravi Teja was roped in. The movie was made on a shoestring budget but went on to become the biggest hit of Ravi Teja’s career till then.
After Bhadra, Boyapati did not get to work for about 1 and half years after Bhadra, it was then Venkatesh called him and asked to prepare an interesting script based on the premise of wife-husband separation and loser husband proving his mettle. Boyapati immediately narrated Tulasi script which he already has and the project immediately went on sets. The result is one more super hit and the biggest commercial hit for Venkatesh till then.
Boyapati had to wait for two more years for his third movie. He got a call from Bala Krishna for a movie. In 15 days time, he prepared Simha story and the project was immediately okayed. The movie was again made on a modest budget but went on to become the biggest commercial hit in Balakrishna’s career.
Even after delivering a hattrick with his first 3 films and delivering a blockbuster like Simha, Boyapati Srinu again had a gap of more than 2 years. He narrated 9 stories to NTR and finally Dhammu materialized. The movie released amid huge expectations but could not hold the audience tight. Even though the movie was a flop, it is also the biggest commercial hit NTR then. His recent film, Legend starring Balakrishna went on to become a blockbuster and is the biggest hit of the actor’s career.
Yet to be announced.
