Geethanjali (1947 – 31 October 2019) was a Telugu actress who acted in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi films for several decades.[2] She was famous for her roles in Illalu, Sitarama Kalyanam with NTR, Adurti Subba Rao's Dr. Chakravarthy, Murali Krishna, Abbayigaru Ammayigaru, Kaalam Marindi and Sambarala Rambabu. She was also a member of the Nandi Award committee.

Personal life[edit]

Geethanjali worked in the Hindi film Parasmani, a Lakshmikant-Pyarelal production. Since her name Mani was already present in the title, the film-maker re-christened her as Geetanjali.[2]

Geethanjali worked with actor Rama Krishna in a few films before marrying him. Krishna has acted in many Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam movies.

Death[edit]

Geethanjali died in the early hours of 31 October 2019 from cardiac arrest. She died while undergoing treatment at a private hospital near Film Nagar in Hyderabad.[3]
