He says that the songs of the 50s and 60’s have some very good music and are evergreen. He says that their popularity and value can be gauged from the fact that they are regularly used for remix songs. His favorite song is ‘Adavari Maatalaku Ardhaale Veerule’.

Whom does Victory Venkatesh fear the most after the release of his new film? Not the film critics or the industry talk.
Venkatesh is afraid of the criticism of his daughter. Venkatesh’s daughter analyses each and every new film of his and criticizes all the weak points bluntly. Venkatesh’s niece also has now joined his daughter in analyzing his films.
So it is these two girls Venkatesh fears the most whenever his new film hits the screens.
2007/12/18 15:10:40 Victory Venkatesh’s next film has been finalized. Venkatesh will do a film for Nallamalapu Srinivas. Yogi will direct the film. Venkatesh will pair up with Anushka for the first time with this film.
Bollywood music director duo Vishal-Shekar will sore the music for the film. The film has been tentatively titled as ‘Chintakayala Ravi’. Venkatesh will play a software professional in the film. The film will hit the floor in the January.
Venkatesh is known popularly as 'victory' Venkatesh. He is now justifying it completely. Venkatesh has become the most bankable stars for producer and directors. His films are always made with a modest budget but they all do well at the box office, bringing good profits for everyone, producers, distributors and buyers.
Venkatesh' last three films, Lakshmi, Adavari Matalaku Ardhale Veruele and 'Tulasi' were big hits at the box office. His next film is 'Chintakyala Ravi'. He is playing a software engineer in the film. Anushka is the heroine. The film is generating a lot of interest among the distributors and buyers. The film appears to be a surefire hit going by Venkatesh's track record in recent times.
2010/10/21 17:26:44 Victory Venkatesh, who is enjoying a very good success rate through out his career, is planning to give his helping hand to flop director Teja to uplift his career. According to latest information, Teja who distances away from the industry for the last two years, recently met Venkatesh in a private function held at Hyderabad. During that time, Teja somehow convinced Venkatesh to do his film. Venkatesh, who was also very much impressed with his script, gave him a nod to go ahead with the project.
It is well aware that the audio of 'Tulasi' directed by Boyapati Srinivas and produced by D Sureshbabu on the banner of Suresh Productions with Venkatesh and Nayanatara in the lead was released into the market, and there is a very good response to the audio.
To mark the occasion, fans of Venkatesh had organised a felicitation programme for the music director Devisri Prasad and director Boyapati Srinivas. Speaking at the function, Boyapati Srinu says, 'You can find Venkatesh with a new look.' Devisri Prasad says, 'For the first time, I scored music for Venkatesh movie.
I took it as a challenge in giving tunes to all the songs. The film is coming up with a very good story. The film has good scope not only for action but also for music. Especially, there is a tremendous response to the song 'Nee Kallathone Naa Kallaloki' scripted by Bhaskarabhatla Ravikumar.
We thank the audiences and for making the audio a big hit.' Writer Bhaskarabhatla says, 'My wish to pen a melodious song for Venkatesh's film was fulfilled with this song.' Director says, 'I attribute the success of the audio to Venkatesh and the producer Sureshbabu, who gave me a free hand in extracting good tunes from the music director.
I assure you that their choreography and screen presence would also be very impressive. Even the re-recording also suited in an apt way to this high voltage film.' The producer is making efforts to release the film in the second week of October.
2007/11/30 11:56:10 Victory Venkatesh has notched up another victory. His film Tulasi has completed 50 days run. And it has set a new record too. The film has run successfully at 225 theatres across the state. Nayanatara is the heroine. Venkatesh has not yet made up his mind on his next film.

Director Krishna Mamidi says, 'The movie has film industry in its backdrop. An assistant director dreams of becoming a director. Despite financial problems he makes a girl whom he comes across as heroine. Though he loves her he did not reveal it. Will he be able to reveal his love as she became a noted heroine or not is the subject of the film? There are five songs and four big songs in the film and Sundaran JV gave melodious tunes to all the songs. We will release the audio very soon and it was planned to release the film in December.'
Chiru loves chicken. But before any MNC like KFC or others approach him to endorse their brand, we would like to make one think clear. He only loves home made chicken and that too Andhra Style. He loves the chicken curry and other delicacies mad by his mother and relishes them during festivals.
The Venkatesh, Anushka and Mamatha Mohandas starrer 'Chintakayala Ravi' is progressing briskly. The next schedule o the film will take place in the US from May 20. Two songs and some key scenes will be shot in this schedule. Venkatesh plays a software engineer in the film.

Venkatesh is also ready to star with Pawan Kalyan in a film. But so far neither he nor Pawan Kalyan could come across a suitable script. The day they find a good script, they will begin work on the film. Hope the day will come in the near future.
2011/4/16 9:22:23 After experiencing a good film like Chandramukhi by Rajinikanth, its much boasted sequel film ‘Nagavalli’ not only disappoints the audiences but also it’s hero Venkatesh. Hence, he took a brief interval to digest the sour experience. Then, he signed his next film tentatively titled as Savitri and Trisha will be pairing with him in the film. The latest news is Venkatesh has agreed to act as Swami Vivekananda in a TV serial. The full details of this project will be announced soon.
