Srirangam Venu

Singer Srirangam Venugopal aka Venu finished working on his 100th film Kayka (director by Teja with music by RP Patnaik) recently. Marking the occasion, he had chitchat with the film media today. Though a Hyderabadi by birth and brought-up, Venu delivers a mellifluous output in chaste Telugu, with overflowing nativity. Nephew of famed classical singer of Andhra Pradesh – late Srirangam Gopalaratnam (the only recipient of Padmashri Award as woman playback singer in the state), Venu is thoroughly trained not only the in the classical, but also western music. So far, he also gave more than 200 stage shows, domestic and overseas.
