()a versatile Telugu cine actor was born on 25 July 1935 to Kaikala Laxmi Narayana couple at Kautaram village in Krishna district
. Having completed his primary and intermediate education in Gudivada
, Satyanarayana graduated
from Gudivada College
. He married Nageswaramma on 10 April 1960 and is blessed with two daughters and two sons.
With his striking personality and sound voice, Satyanarayana landed in Madras for roles in movies. He was first noticed by D. L. Narayana
, who offered him a role in his film Sipayi Koothuru
directed by Changayya in 1959
. Though the film did not do well at the boxoffice
, he was noticed by one and all. It is quite interesting to note that one of the reasons why the makers noticed him is his resemblance to N.T. Rama Rao
. They found him as a prospective candidate to play dupe to NTR
. Satyanarayana aptly fitted that place. He played dupe to NTR in several movies. This is when NTR noticed him. NTR offered Satyanarayana a role in his film Apoorva Sahasra Siraccheda Chintamani
in 1960. This film was directed by S. D. Lal. Satyanarayana played the role of a prince in that film.
It was the vision of B. Vittalacharya
to cast Satyanarayana as villain
. This would change Satyanarayana's career for ever. Vitalacharya cast him in a negative role in his film Kanaka Durga Pooja Mahima
. He fitted the role to the T and from then on, Satyanarayana grew to infinite bounds in establishing himself in the villain role.
