Nandamuri Harikrishna, born into the prestigious clan of the ‘Nandamuri’ actors is known for being a popular telugu actor as well as a politician. Although the movies that he’s acted in aren’t too many, the few of them are remembered for his assertive and powerful characters. Seethaiah (a successful movie in which Harikrishna plays a police officer) and Seetha Rama Raju (co-starring Nagarjuna), for instance are two movies that he will be remembered for.
Born to the demi god Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, the actor and politician, Harikrishna’s path was pretty much laid out right from the birth as an actor and a politician. And he played both the roles, as a politician and as an actor really well, living up to the family name.
Nandamuri Harikrishna appeared in films as a child artist in Sri Krishnavataram and Daana Veera Sura Karna ( apopular film of Sr.Ntr in which he plays a whole of four roles). After that, he did not really show that much inclination towards movies and stayed away from the world of show biz for a while until he got back to playing some intense characters in films like Seethayya and Lahiri Lahiri Lahiri Lo in the early 2000’s.
As a politician, he was a candidate of Telugu Desam Party (founded by his father, Sr.Ntr) for Rajya Sabha in the year 2008. He is married twice and has two actor sons, Kalyan Ram and Jr.Ntr both of which are famous actors of the day. Among all the gems that were a part of the Nandamuri hierarchy, Harikrishna is undoubtedly one.
