Popular actor R Narayana Murthy had made his debut in the films with the blessings of Dr Dasari Narayana Rao. This versatile artiste had moved by the problems faced by the society and had a soft corner towards the Left parties who work for the uplift of poor and downtrodden. He liked the way they oppose the repression by the Landlords and Police. After playing some small time characters in films, he had decided to come up on his own and started directing films which promoted the Leftists. Almost all his films were on the problems faced by people, whether they are farmers or workers or any others. After directing a few films, he launched his own banner Sneha Chitra and started film productions on his own. After venturing into production, he has become all in all in his films. He himself penned story, dialogues, screenplay, gave music and wielded the megaphone to direct the film which he produced on his own banner Sneha Chitra. Almost all his films target a particular section of the people. While some of the had a general appeal. Despite not many big hits, his works generally get the critical acclaim.
When it comes his personal life, though he is a director, producer, he doesn't have a car on his own. He donates money secretly for the education, marriage and other such works. He is never after publicity. Here is an instance where his greatness could be visualized. Some time ago, the film stars had organized a cricket match for the benefit of film workers. During the match, the film stars autographed on a cricket bat which was auctioned. It is R Narayana Murthy who purchased that bat for Rs 6 lakhs and donated it to the organizers. At the same time, he returned that bat again as he has nothing to do with it. Such was his nature. Though looks very stubborn and hard, his soul is such smooth that he could not keep off if someone is in problems. He will try to help them to the possible extent. Surprisingly, he never wanted to be in limelight and always preferred to be the last man in all the spheres like his birthday. Yes. This multi-faceted personality is celebrating his birthday on December 31. Let us wish him a very happy birthday and pray God that he be given many more years of life to help the needy.
