Stories are interesting and sometime they relate to real life also. This is what happened with K. V. Vijayendra Prasad, the person who wrote film stories like ‘Baahubali: The Beginning, and Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
During one of his interview with TOI, the writer shared how he became film writer. His story is really inspiring.
I am a successful failure in so many things. My older brother Koduri Siva Shakthi Datta (father of music director MM Keeravani) is a multi-talented person. He is a writer, painter and lyricist. All of us brothers wanted to see him as a director, so in 1985, whatever money we had, we started a movie and that lost all the money. We did not know what to do. Meanwhile, MM Keeravani became a music director and he would take care of the family. My brother then started writing stories.
Mr K Raghavendra Rao used to call my brother for story discussions and I would accompany him just to be his side-kick. Then K Raghvendra Rao asked my brother to write a story and I assisted him. My brother did not succeed as a writer. He is actually far above the ordinary people who were not able to catch his ideas. He was not willing to stoop down to their level and so there was no meeting point. Helping my brother write stories I realised that I could create stories. In 1994, I got my first break as an independent writer and from then on my journey started.
