Happy Birthday Gunasekar

Gunasekar is one among the greatly talented Tollywood directors and above all is a great story teller, script writer and is recently turned producer out of his passion towards cinema. Among the huge number of existing directors, Gunasekar has set his own and a completely different style of making movies right from his debut film as the captain of the ship. Gunasekar before getting into mainstream direction worked as an Associate Director to senior directors like D.V.Narsaraju, Kranthi Kumar and also the sensational Director Ram Gopal Varma.

Gunasekar started his career with the Socio-Political movie ‘Lathi’ in the year 1992 starring Prashanth in the lead role, for which he received the State Nandi Award for the Best Film of a Director. His next was the classic Epic film ‘Bala Ramayanam’ in the year 1997 with children in the lead roles,which won the ‘National Film Award for Best Children’s Film’ and including several state ‘Nandi Awards’ for that year. This film is introduced Jr NTR as Rama. Gunasekar later directed the soft and emotional Romantic film ‘Sogasu Chooda Taramaa’, and Action films like Mega stars ‘Choodalani Vundi’ and Super star Mahesh’s ‘Okkadu’, ‘Arjun’ and ‘Sainikudu’.

Huge success of his film ‘Okkadu’ made him a star director in Tollywood, and needless to say that it was a turning point in Mahesh Babu’s career making him a super star. Blockbuster film ‘Okkadu’ became the highest grossing Telugu film for that year and was remade into various Indian languages and bagged 8 state ‘Nandi Awaards’ and 4 ‘South Film Fare Awards’. Gunasekhar turned a producer too out of his passion for cinema and made the historical film Rudramadevi released in the year  2015 which got great positive reviews and went on to become one of the biggest hits of the year.


Thinking of Gunasekar’s movies, the first thing to strike are the sets which stand as a special mark in movies like Charminar from Okkadu, Madhura Meenakshi temple from Arjun and the grandeur of Kakathiya Kingdom from Rudramadevi to name a few. Today, the 2nd of June is his Birthday and is turning 52. thetelugufilmnagar.com wishes him a very happy birthday on this special occasion, and all the best for his up coming movies.
