Raghavendra Rao has directed devotional films such as Annamayya, Sri Ramadasu, Shirdi Sai, Om Namo Venkatesaya. Despite making several commercial films, his devotional films have touched the devotees.
Raghavendra Rao had sworn in as TTD Trust Board member in May 2015. Despite being a first time member of the board, KRR has been active in the board and involved in all its activities.
His elevation to TTD Chairman is expected to make Telugu film fraternity happy. However, senior TDP leaders who had high hopes on the chairman post may disappoint with Naidu with this move.
