Vennela Kishore debuted as an actor with the movie Vennela in 2006. He got recognition with his first film and went on to act alongside star actors in a short span. With the same speed he wielded the megaphone and directed three movies in a quick time.
His first film as director Vennela 1 1/2 was a complete disaster. With his second venture Jaffa, he tried his luck by roping in star comedian Brahmanandam as the main lead. He was able to generate lot of buzz prior to its release, but even it did not help and crumbled at the box-office. Looking at the outcome Brahmanandam took an oath not to ever act as a hero. Disappointed he cast himself as a hero in his third film Athadu Aame O Scooter. Well even this bombed at the box-office. What did we learn from this? Passion alone is not sufficient; you also need talent to attain success.
We have another NRI actor who is also following the footsteps of Vennela Kishore. He is Avasarala Srinivas who acted as second lead in Ashta Chemma. His first directorial venture will be on the prestigious Vaaraahi Chalana Chitram Banner. It is not an easy task to convince the likes of Rajamouli and Sai Korrapati and debut on their banner. As soon as the heroine is finalized, this movie will go onto sets. Let’s hope he scores a hit and does not compete with the likes of Vennela Kishore. iQlik Movies wishes Avasarala Srinivas good luck and a great directorial debut.
