Telugu to bag the prestigious National film Award for the 'Best
First Film of a Director' at the 47th national film festival
couple of years back for 'Dollar Dreams'. Even after winning a

is with lot of difficulty that he made

Amigo Movies & National Film Development Corp to produce the
film and indeed it has become the surprise hit of the year.
He had been quite obsessed
with the Film media since long and he had put all his earnings for
making 'Dollar Dreams' which is a film about Hyderabadi youth who aspire
for their dream land- the land of America. Infact the movie was sent for
the national awards in the last day for receiving the film nominations.
What' s more they had just one copy and that too a soiled copy and then
how it went on to win the National award is a Directors Dream Come true.
Now with the instant success of 'Anand', Many big producers have sought
him out for making a film. On last count, he has had 15 offers.
