Senior writer Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao, who wrote scores of movies in association with his brother Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, is not keeping well. His health has taken a beating due to age.
A pic of Rao with director Jayanth C Paranji has surfaced on the Internet. "Caught up with my Guruji! A little saddened to see his body aging, but my God, his mind is still as sharp as ever!!! To think he and his brother wrote more than 300 films. This is no mean achievement! 200 plus were blockbusters!!! Love you Sir (sic)," the director wrote on Instagram.
Rao's feeble looks have had his admirers a little shocked. But they are happy that he is mentally as active as in the past.
