Sincere Apologies: After checking the release dates of ANR films, I released that the information provided below is not accurate.

Six in a Row: “Natasamrat” Akkineni & “ Darsakaratna” Dasari Narayana Rao” will certainly feature in any list of successful actor-director combinations of Telugu Cinema. But the creative director did not get a chance to work with A.N.R. straightaway as he had to complete 22 movies before getting a nod from his favorite actor (self-confessed). Though their first two movies- “Devadasu Malli Puttadu” & “Raavanudee Ramudaithee” – fared moderately at the box-office, the deceased actor persisted with the director and the rest, as they say, is history.

Starting with “ Yedanthasthula Meda ”, the actor/director duo teamed up in several memorable films like “ Sreevaari Mucchatlu”, “Premabhishekam”, “Premamandhiram” and in fact, Dr. A.N.R. acted in 6 successive films with the film-maker, which is an all time Industry Record.
