My 'ABOUT' in English | For Ready Reference


I’m Manohar Chimmani.

Film Director, Producer, Nandi Award Winning Writer, Blogger. 

Managing Director of Swarnasudha Projects Private Limited, Hyderabad. 

I’m a Life Member in Telugu Film Directors’ Association (TFDA) and Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce (TFCC).

From working as Machinist in workshops to becoming Nandi Award Winning Writer and Film Director, it’s an insatiably curious journey.

Let me take you through a brief journey of my life…

To name a few highlights of my academic career, I topped and won two Gold Medals in the two Post-Graduate courses I completed from Osmania University, Hyderabad. I topped my batch in Russian Advanced Diploma as well, which is a 3 year course equivalent to degree in Russian language. Later, I have also added post-graduate diploma courses in Journalism and Advertising & Management to the list.

Writing has always been part of my life. I wrote many short stories, articles, features, serials and plays in all the leading newspapers and magazines in Telugu and in Radio from my student days. I translated and published many Russian short stories into Telugu.

To quote a couple of achievements, my book “Adhunika Journalism” is listed as one of the text books for reference in the Department of Telugu at Kakatiya University, Warangal. My book on screen writing “Cinema Script Rachanashilpam” won the prestigious Nandi Award.

Very recently - I wrote a book on Hon Chief Minister of Telangana State KCR garu - with the title: "KCR - The Art of Politics", and the same was launched by Hon Minister and Working President of BRS, KTR garu.  

Professionally, I worked in three Central Government Organizations – HMT, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya and All India Radio in various capacities for about 14 years and finally settled down as a Freelancer in different creative arenas.

So far, I made four feature films in Telugu as Writer-Director, as a hobby. Thanks to Corona, number of new big-income avenues like OTTs and Web Series, etc have been opened up in the field of film production. Now, I am fully into filmmaking as my prime profession as Writer, Producer and Director. 

My latest passionate project – a series of trendy commercial feature films is in pre-production stage. 

Likeminded and aspiring Film Investors are welcome for collaboration.

Please feel free to reach out to me. I look forward to a beautiful creative journey together.

Best Wishes,
Manohar Chimmani
