Sad, But True: Great Director’s Last Days

He was a talented writer, director and is lauded as the comedy brahma of the Telugu film industry. But despite all his fame and success, Jandhyala’s last days were uneventful. Having run of all his earnings, his last film was Vichitram which had Ghazal Srinivas as the hero. The film was an utter flop and he shifted base to Hyderabad. 
Since he had twins at a very late age, he had to run the family by doing stage shows and hosting comedy programmes. During his last days, the comedians who were introduced by him too stayed away from him. So, he was forced to spend time with a few close friends. He passed away at a young age. Though no one thought of him when he was alive, lakhs of people turned up for his funeral at Pujagutta crematorium.
