Nutan Prasad (12 December 1945 – 30 March 2011[1]), born Tadinada Varaprasad, was a Tollywood actor. He started his film acting career in the early 1970s.[2]

Career[edit]

Nutan Prasad started his acting career with the play "Naa Votu" in Guntur

He started acting in films with the movie Andala Ramudu starring Akkineni Nageshwara Rao in the year 1973. He continued his venture with movies like Needaleni Aadadi, but he was first recognized in the movie Muthyala Muggu when he acted as a villain along with Rao Gopal Rao.

His acting career reached its peak with the movie Rajadhiraju in which he acted as Satan. The movie became very popular due to his acting and the song "Kotta devudandi babu kotta devudandi", which is still popular today. Prasad, although he acted with all the generation of heroes, was particularly popular with the second generation heroes. Movies like Patnam vachina pativratalu, Khaidi (Village munsab), Magamaharaju, Srivariki premalekha, Kathanayakudu, and Aha Naa Pellanta[disambiguation needed], all continued his winning streak.

In 1989, while shooting for the film Bamma Maata Bangaru Baata, he had an accident and broke his back. This left him paralysed from the waist down and he had to use a wheelchair. He then quit acting in movies. Once in a while he appeared in guest roles. He also did voiceover and commentary for serials and movies. He dubbed for late Gummadi Venkateswara Rao in Aayanakiddaru (1995) as the artiste had issues with his voice at that time. Later on, Nutan Prasad became the narrator of the hit crime reality show in ETV-2 "Neralu Ghoralu". He was quite appreciated by the Telugu TV audience for his part in Neralu Ghoralu.

He died after prolonged illness at the age of 65 years on 30 March 2011 in Hyderabad. He is survived by a son (Nutan Kumar) and two daughters.
