Alur Chakrapani

Alur Chakrapani

Alur Chakrapani was born in Itanagar village near Tenali, Guntur District of the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. He was from an agricultural family and had unmatched creativity. He studied in Tenali and had to go to Vellore, Tamil Nadu for medical treatment. He stayed there for a few months and learnt Bengali during that time. Initially, he started translating novels from Bengali to Telugu. With his creative mind, he started writing short stories and novels. At this time, he was approached by Nagi Reddy to be a partner and make movies under Vijaya-Vauhini banner. Together, they made successful movies like Patala Bhairavi, Maya Bazar, Gundamma Katha, Missamma , Shavukaru, and Appu Chesi Pappu Kudu that are still popular with Telugu speaking people. They came up with the idea of a story book for kids and the result is Chandamama. Chakrapani made Chandamama popular not only in Telugu language but in ten other Indian languages. He started the monthly publication of Yuva magazine in Hyderabad especially for Telugu loving folks.
