Telugu Actor Venkatesh Still Going Strong!

'Victory' Venkatesh enters the silver jubilee year in filmdom and continues to don the actor's cap though he has been selective in doing films in the last few years.
He has seven Nandi Awards (given by the Andhra Pradesh government) and six Filmfare Awards in his kitty (he's done 62 films over the last 25 years).
Venky's body of work spans various genres like action, romance, comedy etc. Women mainly flock to see his films as they are a blend of sentiments, emotions besides the song, dance, comedy and action.
Recently he acted with Kamal Haasan in Eenadu (the Telugu remake of A Wednesday) indicating that he's open to doing multi-starrers.
Perhaps because of his spirituality, he has not allowed success to go into his head. "We should be able to balance our spiritual and material life. I read the principles of Ramana Maharishi, Ramakrishna, Vivekananda, Osho, Bhagavad Gita etc to keep myself rooted to the purpose of existence," says the down-to-earth actor.
Right now he is busy shooting Nagavalli (the sequel to Chandramukhi) with five heroines including Anushka and Richa Gangopadhyaya.
A doting husband and dad to four children, Venkatesh is happy to spend enough time with his family.
