Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

He joined E.V V Satyanarayana as an assistant director for Abbayigaru. Later on he joined director Sagar.[4][5] After that he joined S.V Krishna Reddy for the film Sakutumba Saparivara Sametam. After that film, he worked with Kranthi Kumar for two films - 9 Nelalu and Paadutaa Teeyagaa.[6] While he was doing a film with Sagar, Bellamkonda . Suresh used to come to the sets. He watched Vinayak assisting Sagar and promised him that he'll give him a break definitely. After Paaduthaa Theeyagaa, Vinayak was not doing much as an assistant and thus started working on his own scripts. When he offered him a film, He was thrilled and narrated the story to NTR. NTR liked the subject - it was a love story - but Kodali Nani didn't like it. After a couple of days, he narrated another story that was instantly liked and taken to the sets, and that was the story of Aadi.[7] VV Vinayak Confirmed news in His Latest Interview that Chiranjeevi 150th Movie Not Confirmed.[8]
