Megastar, Power Star laud Madala
Veteran actor-producer Madala Ranga Rao on Sunday breathed his last. Rich condolence messages have been paid by personalities from different fields.
Megastar Chiranjeevi particularly is enamoured of Madala's principled stand with respect to commercial cinema. Since he believed in his kind of "revolutionary" films, Madala successfully refused to be smitten by the commerce bug. "Such was his idealism and commitment. R Narayana Murthy garu and many others have been inspired by his work," Chiru said.
Pawan Kalyan made it a point to talk about Ranga Rao's Leftism and progressive views as reflected by his films in 1980s. "Apart from the subjects in films like 'Erra Mallelu', 'Swarajyam' and 'Viplava Sankam', even the songs in his films were thought-provoking," the Jana Sena leader commented.
