M. S. Raju
Maha Sankranthi Raju (known as M. S. Raju) is a Telugu film producer and the first Indian producer to receive three consecutive Filmfare Awards South. He produced blockbusters like Okkadu, Varsham, and Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana. His recent movies Pournami, Aata, Vaana and Maska did not do well at the box office.
His son, Sumanth Ashwin’s, debut movie is titled "Tuneega Tuneega," a film under his father’s direction. He was able to impress audiences with his ease of acting and dancing, but the film failed at the box office.
