He also put his hands into film making (and burnt them), producing and
directing the film "chitranaLeeyam" (1938, orig. based on Dharmavaram
Krishnamacharyulu's well-known stage play, with addanki Sriramamurthy,
Sriranjani Sr., and Madhavapeddi Venkataramayya). Wrote lyrics for films in
late 30s, also wrote dialogues for atleast one more film "venkaTESwara
maahaatmyam" (directed by P. Pullayya, 1939, with CSR and P. Santakumari 
in lead roles, well Pullayya re-made it in 1960).
