Tanikella Bharani Biography

Tanikella Bharani Education

He attended Hyderabad’s A Railway School and then continued his education at Railway Degree College for Commerce in nearby Secunderabad, Telangana. Following that, he earned a diploma in drama from Osmania University in Hyderabad, Telangana. Tanikella first appeared on screen as a police officer in the 1985 Telugu film Ladies Tailor.

His latest film, “Sri Kanaka Mahalakshmi Recording Dance Troupe,” came out more than two years after his last. Siva, Swarakalpana, and Chettu Kinda Pleader were all Telugu films he was in that year. Numerous popular 1990s Telugu films featured him, including Seetharamaiah Gari Manavaralu (1991), Money Money (1994), Big Boss (1995), Pellichoresuttam (1997), and Samudram (2000).

Tanikella Bharani Early Life

As a young man he wrote the play “Adde Kompa” while he was in college. His play was well received by the judges and audience members alike, and he was awarded first place. Around the middle of the 1970s, he befriended a friend of the Telugu actor Rallapalli. Plays involving dialogue and action were written with his assistance at the request of Tanikella. Later, on Rallapalli’s advice, he uprooted his life and relocated to Chennai.

Then, in a play by Rallapalli titled “Mugimpi Lai Katha,” he portrayed a 70-year-old man. When the play opened to rave reviews, he suddenly became a household name. Some time later, when Rallapalli’s theatre company “Sri Murali Kalanilayam” needed a playwright, he turned to Tanikella. Eventually, he agreed and wrote ten plays for the theater. The Sahitya Akademi Award, India’s highest literary honor, was given to him for his drama “Gograhanam.”

In addition to being a playwright, he has also been in numerous stage productions. Jambu Dweepam, Chal Chal Gurram, Naalugo Kothi, Kokkorokko, and Gaardhabhaandam are just a few of his well-known works. Gaardhabhanda, Grahanam Pattina Ratri, Sani Grahalu, Goyyi, Panjaram Lo Elaka, and Hulakki are just a few of the Telugu playlets in which he has appeared.

Tanikella Bharani Career

During the 1970s, when both Bharani and Rallapalli were working in theatre, Bharani met Rallapalli, who would later become a major celebrity in Tollywood. Bharani enlisted his help in creating improvised monologues and scenarios. Later, he went back to school and got a degree in the performing arts. At last, he decided to follow Rallapalli’s advice and move to Chennai.

Some of the movies whose dialogues he wrote are Ladies Tailor (1986), Sri Kanaka Mahalakshmi Recording Dance Troupe (1987), Varasudochhadu (1988), Chettu Kinda Pleader (1989), Swara Kalpana (1989), Shiva (1989), and Seenu Vasanthi Lakshmi (1989).
