“One of his most popular stages roles was as Raktakanneru Nagabhushanam in Raktha Kanneeru, which he also produced. Nagabushanam gave more than 2,000 performances of the drama.

Nagabhushanam also acted as a Hero in the film “Edi Nijam”. The film was appreciated for its depiction of rural problems in a convincing manner. He also acted as a hero in a movie which showcased his love of theater, “Natakalarayudu.” But the failure of the latter did not allow him to further experiment as a lead hero. Later on, Nagabhushanam turned a Producer and launched “Ravi Art Theatres”. By naming his banner on the name of stage theatre “Ravi Arts”, which produced and exhibited “Raktha Kanneeru” Nagabhushanam paid tributes to the Theatre group which laid a foundation for his career.

Then he produced the films “Bikari Ramudu, Natakala Rayudu, Oke Kutumbam, Praja Nayakudu and Prema Chesina Pelli” in his banners. His film “Praja Nayakudu” was made on the basis of the story of the novel “Samatha” which was written by Vasi Reddy Seetha Devi. This film achieved the Third Best Film Nandi Award from AP State Govt.
Raktha Kanneeru Naga Bhushanam who regaled the audience with his satirical dialogues and witty one-liners breathed his last on 05-05-1995. His absence in this mortal world cannot be replaced.
