Nagaiah - A Genius Of An Artiste

Actors are born. You can't find fault with their talent in any phase of their acting. Often in some cases their reel life merges with their real life. Nagaiah was one among such. He is said to be the Paul Mooney of the Telugu cinema. He was perhaps the most expressive and most talented actor the Telugu film field has ever seen. 'Pothana', 'Vemana' and 'Tyagaiah' and many other films are a testimony to his talent and appeal. It is said that he spent a few days at Saint Tyagaiah's hometown Tiruvayyur before preparing for 'Tyagaiah' shooting. He even had the privilege of listening to musical giants of that time like Maharajapuram Viswanatha Iyer, Dwaram Venkataswami Naidu, Chowdaiah, Mani Iyer, Ariyakudi and Bangalore Nagamani. He learnt many Tyagaraya keertanas and regaled his listeners with them.
