Veteran Telugu actor Sharath Babu, who plays an important role in producer D Ramanaidu's upcoming Telugu romantic-drama Nenem Chinna Pillana, says modern-day producers need to emulate him to be successful.
Talking to IANS, Sharath Babu said, "Even if today's producers emulate half of what this man (Ramanaidu) has been doing as a producer, we will have a very successful industry. I think all producers should take a leaf out of his book and learn the art to be an effective producer."
D Ramanaidu has been producing films in various languages for nearly five decades. The producer has delivered films across multiple languages such as Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada among many more. Nenem Chinna Pillana is his 147th film.
Sharath Babu added, "I don't think it's about the number of films he has produced. It's about the experience that he gained in the process. It's about success, failure and the setbacks he must have encountered as a producer. His years of experience can come in handy for several producers."
Some of the best films of Ramanaidu, who produces films under the banner Suresh Productions, include Prem Nagar, Jeevana Tarangalu and Soggadu. In Hindi, he is known for producing films such as Anari, Tohfa and Dildaar.
