Career

Yandamuri Veeerendranath is a multi-faceted personality, being a playwright, novelist, film director, and personality development motivator.

In Telugu literature during the 1960s and 1970s, female writers like Yaddanapoodi Sulochana Rani were dominating the scene, because most of the readers were female. This led to sidelining of the male writers. Some male writers wrote stories and novels using female pen names. Yandamuri reversed these trends and came up with his first novel "Rushi". He stole the limelight with Tulasi Dalam without using any pen name. This book became a best seller. He wrote about 50 novels including Vennello Aadapilla and Antarmukham. His works were translated into several languages, namely Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, English, Hindi, and Marathi.

His personality-development book Vijayaniki 5 Metlu (The 5 Steps to Success) created an all time record in Telugu literature, by generating sales worth INR 20,000,000.

He started Saraswati Vidya Peetham in Kakinada by investing 10,000,000 rupees to educate the poor tribal students in academics as well as personality development. He also trained A Sudhakar Raju in many aspects and supported A Sudhakar Raju to break two Guinness World Records.

Personal life

Yandamuri married Anugeetha on 10 March 1974. They have a son Praneeth, who received his MBA from the European Institute of Business Administration in France. His son pursued Chartered Accountancy from ICAI.

Popular culture

Many of his novels have been made into motion pictures in Telugu. He also directed two motion pictures in Telugu, the first being "Agnipravesam", starring Yamuna, and the second film with Chiranjeevi by name, "Stuvartpuram Police Station". Both the films were based on his own novels but were not well received by audiences. Hence, Veerendranath reverted to writing. Currently, he is writing a weekly serial in Saakshi Sunday magazine "Funday", by name "Dega Rekkala Chappudu".

Awards

In addition to financial success, he has won many awards for his work. His first film as a dialogue writer won a best regional award from the President of India.
