Rajasekhar, Kodi Ramakrishna and M.S.Arts was a winning combination at the box-office. Their journey started with Rajasekhar (“mataash” is his stock dialogue) excelling in the negative role in the film ” Talambraalu”. They soon conquered the hearts of film lovers with “Aaahuti”, which was based on Sidney Sheldon’s “If Tomorrow Comes”. Rajasekhar dazzled in the lead role (Ashok)and his stylish acting and mannerisms earned him the “Angry Young Man” monicker.
Their combination hit the bulls eye with “Ankusam” as it became one of the top grossers of the Industry. The film was based on few real incidents which happened in Hyderabad during the 80s.
