    As so many people do not know this popular Telugu actor name called S.V Rangarao one of the most versatile, natural and dynamic actors who can tell complex Dialogues with very ease whatever the character(portraying complex - social, biographical, and mythological characters). He acted for 30 years in film Industry. As he didn't get any prestigious award from the nation. Let Telugu and Tamil members of ISC, please wish him for his soul as it is our bounden duty. Knowledgeable members, please respond...

    S V Ranga Rao is a very famous actor in Telugu Cinema Industry. He was in his best in many films and he was competing with the likes NTR and ANR in many movies to showcase his acting skills. If you remember the name of an actor who played the role of Duryodhana, I first remember his name and then NTR. His action as Ghatothgaja was superb and even today also no one can beat him in this role. He was a very great supporting actor who played many movies with NTR, ANR, Krishna and Sobhan Babu.
    I don't know that today is his birthday. He is really a blessed actor with a lot of positives in his credit. An actor whom can't be replaced by any new actors after him.

    always confident

    Who can forget the legendary S V Ranga Rao as he is the must actor to be taken in old films especially with a religious story line. I can remember his roles in Mayabazar where in he would eat dozens of big vessels of food as the Ghatodhgaj character to which even today his name cannot be forgotten. He is good at delivering lengthy dialogues of Pouranic nature and no other can do that with so ease. His tall and handsome personality matches to the same personality of NTR in those days and thus earned equal importance with name and fame which we cannot forget for this versatile actor.

    SV Ranga Rao is my favorite actor who could play any character role. May it be a grand father; father; brother; husband; villain; king; minister; Ravaneswaran; Duryodhanan; Katothkach; and many roles that I haven't seen him in Telugu films. An unforgettable film personality of south Indian cinema.

    This is the first time I have come to know about this great actor of Tamil and Telugu cinema. I have also come to know that Shri Rangarao was born on 1st July. But no Member has mentioned his year of birth. I am interested to know that also.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
