One director from Telangana region enjoyed all the limelight during separate state agitation is N Shankar. And the one film which we are speaking about is ‘Jai Bolo Telangana.’ Although, Shankar is into cinema industry from very long time making some really wonderful movies like ‘Sri Ramulayya, Jayam Manadera’ and many more, it was ‘Jai Bolo Telangana’ bought him more laurels.
After enjoying commercial and critical reception both as producer and director of JBT, he restricted much of the time to Telangana agitation activities. Now that separate state dream is achieved and the newly formed state is on developmental process, Shankar appears to have re-started his career not as a director but as an actor.
Yes, Shankar playing the father character to Raj Tharun in recently released ‘Seethamma Andalu Ramayya Sithralu’ came like a sudden surprise for audience. This role is not that of a simple father. It illuminated the mighty bonding between father and son which is winning the appreciations today from public. Let us see, whether N Shankar will continue his innings as actor or end it with only one.
