Film industry bids adieu to EVV

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The mortal remains of filmmaker Eedara Veera Venkata Satyanarayana (54) were laid to rest late on Saturday on a plot of land owned by the family at Manikonda near here.

Almost the entire Telugu film industry turned out to pay its last respects to the filmmaker, popular as ‘EVV', who died on Friday evening. Doctors said he died of a cardiac attack, though he was suffering from throat cancer for sometime now. His wife Saraswathi, sons Aryan Rajesh and ‘Allari' Naresh were with him during the last moments.

A steady stream of mourners visited EVV's house in Jubilee Hills. Prominent among them were Telugu Desam president N. Chandrababu Naidu, Praja Rajyam president K. Chiranjeevi, CPI secretary K. Narayana and film personalities like Akkineni Nageswara Rao, D. Rama Naidu, K. Raghavendra Rao, Dasari Narayana Rao, Krishnam Raju, M. Mohan Babu, Nandamuri Balakrishna, Movie Artists' Association president M. Muralimohan, D. Suresh Babu, Venkatesh, Nagarjuna and Pawan Kalyan.

EVV started his career as director with ‘Chevvilo Puvvu', starring Rajendra Prasad as hero and it ended with his 51st movie ‘Kathi Kantha Rao'. He has hits with leading stars in the Telugu industry, including his sole Hindi film, ‘Suryavansh' with Amitabh Bachchan and Soundarya in the lead.

He came to be known for his comedy movies, thereby stepping into the shoes of Jandhyala. His hits include ‘Prema Khaidi', ‘Alluda Mazaaka' with Chiranjeevi, ‘Hello Brother' with Nagarjuna, ‘Chinna Abbayi' with Venkatesh, ‘Goppinti Alludu' starring Balakrishna, ‘Addirindi Alludu' with Mohan Babu as hero and ‘Maavidakulu' that had Jagapathi Babu as hero.

EVV's sons ‘Allari' Naresh and Aryan Rajesh are also into acting with the former having made a mark for himself.

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and Minister for Cinematography D.K. Aruna express their condolences to the bereaved family.

The AP. Film Chamber of Commerce has organised a meeting at 6 p.m. on Sunday to condole EVV's death. Rajya Sabha Member T. Subbarami Reddy expressed his grief and conveyed his condolences to the members of the bereaved family.
