Raghava Lawrence is an Indian choreographer who has also appeared in films as an actor, director, composer and playback singer.
He had brain tumor when he was a child and rarely went to school. In his interview with idlebrain.com, the multi-talented star said:
“I had gone through lots of struggles after surgery. My uncles and elders asked me to do some work for livelihood. But my mother told me that I should not leave the art of dance. That one dialogue is the inspiration for making this film. My mother is the reason behind what I am today.”
He got cured after his mother went to a temple of Raghavendra Swami and Lawrence strongly believes that it was Raghavendra Swami who cured him of his tumour. He became an ardent devotee of the deity and added its name to his name.
This is truly inspirational.
