Murali Mohan Maganti (Telugu: మురళి మోహన్ మాగంటి) (born 24 June 1940) is an Indian film actor, producer, politician and business executive from Telugu cinema.[1] In 1973, Murali Mohan debuted in Jagame Maya, produced by Poornachandra Rao Atluri. He gained recognition with the 1974 film Tirupati, directed by Dasari Narayana Rao. He has acted in over 350 feature films.[2] He has served in various positions in the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) and the Andhra Pradesh Film Development Corporation. He was the Honorary President of the Telugu Movie Artists Association until the elections in 2015.[3]

In 1980 he formed his own film production company, Jayabheri Arts, with his brother Kishore. His first film as producer was Varala Abbay, directed by Raja Chandra. This was Murali Mohan's 100th film. The company produced 25 films, which include the blockbuster film Athadu.

He is the Chairman of the construction company Jayabheri Group.[4][5] He has also been active in politics for the Telugu Desam Party. He contested in the 15th Loksabha elections in 2009 as the TDP candidate from Rajahmundry parliamentary constituency of Andhra Pradesh, which eventually lost to the Indian National Congress candidate Vundavalli Aruna Kumar by just 2,147 votes.[6] In 2014, he won the 16th Loksabha elections as a member of Parliament from Rajahmundry.
