Popular music director Chakri's father Jilla Venkata Narayana, who has
acted in a few movies, died on November 1, 2012, following massive
heart attack. According to reports, he suffered a cardiac arrest at
6 am on Thursday. The 73-year teacher-turned-actor is survived by
his wife, two sons and three daughters.
Jilla Venkata Narayana started his career as a teacher in
Mahaboobabad, Warangal district. He had sung a few hit numbers in
the movies like Dhana Lakshmi I Love You and Love In
Hyderabad for which his son Chakri had scored music. He had
even played some small roles in films like Gopi Gopika
Godavari, Ranga The Donga, Jai Bolo
Telangana and Veedu Theda.
The sudden death of Jilla Venkata Narayana has shocked the
people in the Telugu film industry. His son Chakri was busy with
his music works in Hong Kong when he breathed his last. However,
reports suggest that the musician is now his way back to the city
to attend his father's cremation services, which are expected to be
held today (Friday).
We, at Oneindia, offer our heart-felt condolences to Chakri's
family. May the departed soul of Jilla Venkata Narayana rest in
