అన్న, మీ అమూల్యమైన సమయాన్ని మాకు కేటాయించి మా నాన్నగారి పాటను నిఘంటువును ఆవిష్కరించారు. కవులను విద్యావంతులను ఇలా ఇంతగా గౌరవించే మీ సంస్కారానికీ సభ్యతకూ బహుథా కృతజ్ఞతలము🙏 https://t.co/V3zte4JceM— Priyadarshi (@priyadarshi_i) June 12, 2020
Priyadarshi Pulikonda, who made his Tollywood debut with the Vijay Devarakonda-starrer 'Pellichupulu', has been a regular presence in many films thereafter. While his performance in 'Pellichoopulu' grabbed the attention of the Telugu film industry, he was also successful later on in essaying roles as a supporting actor. He also bagged a few film awards which stand testimony to his talent in making the new-age comedy laced with the Telangana dialect work brilliantly on the silver screen.
While playing comic cameos, Priyadarshi also played the lead role in 'Mallesham', a film based on the life story of a rural innovator Chintakindi Mallesham. The biopic brought to the fore the life of a Class-6 school dropout who later goes on to revolutionise the weaving industry by creating 'Asu Machine'.
Priyadarshi and Ananya Nagalla acted in the lead roles in the film. The film was jointly bankrolled by Sri Adhikari and Raj Rachakonda, who also directed it, and Venkat Siddareddy.
