Kaikala Satyanarayana

Kaikala Satyanarayana is one of the most famous Telugu Actors of 1960s to 1990s. He has also been into production and direction of movies at one point.

He entered Telugu Film Industry through a movie called Sipayi Koothuru, produced by D. L. Narayana. This movie was not a commercial hit but had worked well for Kaikala Satyanarayana. The reason is his striking resemblance with the super star then Mr. N.T.Rama Rao. In most of his initial movies, he was chosen as a dupe for N.T Rama Rao. After playing several dupe roles for N.T. Rama Rao, Satyanarayana was given an offer by N.T.Rama rao to act in an independent role in Apoorva Sahasra Siraccheda Chintamani in 1960. He was asked to play a role of a prince in this movie. This movie was a great hit. First time ever in his career, he played a negative role in a movie called "Kanaka Durga Pooja Mahima" directed by Vithalacharya. He was so well fitting for the role, that his career had taken a completely different turn altogether. He was flooded with offers for negative roles. He did all of them very well. His journey in Telugu Film Industry has been really huge with an enormous number of 200 plus movies. He is much closely related with the role he played as "Yamadharma Raja" in many movies. He was also awarded with Nandi Award for Best Feature Film for his own production film Bangaru Kutumbam (1994).

Naga Chaitanya

Naga Chaitanya is a Telugu actor and he is into the film industry since 2009. His debut film Josh fetched him several awards, though he didn’t get the expected positive reviews for it. Naga Chaitanya was born in Hyderabad on 23rd November 1986. His parents are Telugu superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna and Lakshmi Daggubati. His granddads Akkineni Nageswara Rao and Daggubati Naidu were both prominent faces in Telugu film industry. Film celebrities Daggubati Venkatesh, Rana Daggubati, Sushanth and Sumant Yerlagada are also relatives to him. When his parents parted ways Chaitanya came to Chennai. Amala Akkineni is the stepmother of this star. Though Chaitanya stayed with Lakshmi, he used to visit Hyderabad to see Nagarjuna. He did his schooling in Chennai. He performed drums and guitar while at school. Since Chaitanya was from a film family, everyone expected him to enter the industry, but he was not initially inclined. Eventually he nodded in the affirmative and pursued acting training in Mumbai. Later, in order to be trained in fight and dance, he journeyed to Hollywood Studios. Gautham Menon’s “Em Maya Chesave” (Tamil film Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya) is the second venture of Chaitanya and he was lauded by critics for his performance in the film. Autonagar Surya, 100 percent love, Dada, Bejawada, Tadaka, Manam, Oka Laila Kosam are some of the films in which this star acted. Tadakha, which is the remake of Tamil flick Vettai, starring Arya, gave the much-needed appreciation for Chaitanya (the film set the cash registers ringing at the box office) since his previous venture Bejawada was lashed at by the critics for his poor performance. The 2014 flick Manam in which Chaitanya shared screen space with his father and grandfather saw a great transformation in this actor. Some of the other films of Chaitanya were also highly appreciated.
