500 Films Old Actor Turns Telugu Film Director

Popular actor Satya Prakash, who hails from Odisha and got popular with Telugu films as he was shot to fame with Sai Kumar's Police Story. Since then, there is no looking back for this bank employee who gave up his career to join films. Acting in more than 500 films so far, today he speaks fluent Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, English, Bengali and Odiya.

Guess what, this popular villain is now looking forward to having a tryst with direction like many other senior actors. His debut film is titled Ullaala Ullaala and features two newcomers in the leads. One wonders how come Satya Prakash picked up newcomers than some known faces, but still, it takes huge to prove mettle in direction such that he could pick top stars later.

Earlier, character artists like LB Sriram and Tanikella Bharani tried their luck with direction, but as they happen to be writers as well, it worked a bit. Then we have the likes of Prakash Raj and others in the modern era, directing movies. None of them actually made any mark as filmmakers though.
