Venkatesh’s latest film with Naga Chaitanya, Venky Mama releases today and is a story about the relationship of an unusual uncle-nephew pair. This experienced actor has always expressed his wish to work with the younger actor and has never hesitated from taking meaty roles that aren’t commercially heroic.
Yet, each time, he has managed to mint moolah and make them commercial in his own ways. So, on his birthday, we take a look at five genres to which the actor has added value over the years.
Since his second film, Kaliyuga Pandavulu, Venkatesh has been riding the romantic genre with his simple and charming ways. His lover-boy image is hard to take off our minds even today. With films like Swarnakamalam, Prema, Mallishwari, Garshana and Babu Bangaram, he has given the young actors a tough run for their films. He brought real and relatable stories of falling in love and heartache onscreen.
