I once saw a play named "KANYASULKAM" enacted by J.V Somayajulu and Ramanamurthy
etc. in Hyd Ravindra Bharathi. According to my knowledge Gireesam role is from
that play. I don't know much about "Subbisetty Chintamani", I just wrote this
thinkig there was some confusion between these two plays in the mail posted.
Probably I am not aware that even "subbisetty chintamani " is also played by
the same actors.
