Pawan Kalyan was my first student: Satyanand
Satyanand is one of the few acting gurus who has got a mini-celebrity status. Cinephiles hear his name commonly in star interviews, etc. If and when Pawan Kalyan writes his memoir, he will surely mention this acting coach's name for sure.
Speaking at a 'Tej I Love You' event on Sunday, the celebrated trainer described Power Star as his first student. "About 177 of my students are in various departments in the film industry. I am what I am because of Mega heroes. I have trained Varun Tej and Sai Dharam Tej as well," Satyanand said fondly.
When Pawan came to him to learn basic acting lessons, Satyanand trained him because Chiranjeevi had referred the future superstar. But years later, when PSPK attained superstardom, Satyanand's name became popular.
