Guinness Record Controversy
Narayana became very popular when he claimed to break the existing Guinness Record of Brahmanandam, in July 2014. In the promotion of Dilip Kumar and Priya Gore starrer film Saheba Subramanyam, he claimed that he started his career in 1997, at the age of 46. Since then, he has acted in over 700 films in a short period of just 17 years. He thinks that he deserves guinness record, as Brahmanandam acted in 700 films in 20 years whereas he did it just in 17 years. His friends appealed to the Guinness Records Academy to recognise him. 
M.S. Narayana made his debut as director in the film Koduku with his son Vikram.
