Veerabhadram Chowdary, popular as an Indian film director, was born in Kalavalapalli, a small village in the West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. Coming from a poor family of a farmer and housemaker, Veerabhadram had his stint in the film industry in 1997. He worked as an assistant director. Currently living in Hyderabad, he is well known for his creations in Telugu cinema. Born on 10th June 1977, Veerabhadram was a young boy heavily influenced by movies. After watching Nagarjuna’s ‘
,’ he became hell-bent on working in the film industry. Studies did not take a back seat for Veerabhadram, and he completed his degree from his hometown. He wanted to take up MCA after moving to Hyderabad, but his focus had shifted to movies. Veerabhadram was soon offered to make a movie for Usha Kiran.
After the movie did not make it big at the box office, people in the film industry thought that movies with new directors would be risky. He had to wait nearly 14 years for a big break in the Telugu film industry. He made his debut film ‘Aha Naa Pellanta’ which was about three brothers with a big responsibility of marrying their younger sister. It was a family entertainer show that did well at the box office. His second movie ‘Poolarangadu’ was a big hit at the box office too, and faired well with the audience. However, his third movie ‘
,’ didn't make him win the hattrick hit and it turned out to be a flop movie. His recent movie ‘Chuttalabbayi’ gathered mixed reviews at the box office.
When asked why there was a long gap between his 2013 movie ‘Bhai’ and ‘Chuttalabbayi,’ Chowdary said that a couple of heroes did not approve his script since his situation was not stable. Moreover, it took him time to find a good producer after the script was approved. Veerabhadram is known to make movies based on comedy, family emotions and even action. Last year, he was working on a thriller which wasn't his forte. The new movie is under the JVR Cinema banner. He had very cleverly added that he gets inspired by the kind of cinema made in the world and not just the regional cinemas. After Nagarjuna revealed his regret making ‘Bhai,’ Veerabhadram did not take any offence and stated that the comment did not hurt him. His movies include ‘Danger,’ ‘
’ and ‘
