1. American Born. Confused Desi
When we think of Tollywood, we think of two things unforgettably. One is action and the other is ‘comedy’. And who is the king of comedy? Of course, we have the legend Brahmanandam. But the next in line is the man who is present in almost every other and we love it. That special person is the birthday boy, Vennela Kishore who turns 39 today. Not that we need a reason, but here are 11 films you can treat yourself to for celebrating this amazing actor.
2. Anando Brahma
A gatekeeper-turned-explorer, stuck in a haunted villa… Anando Brahma is the perfect combination of comedy and horror. If that’s your jam, this movie is pure, unadulterated treat.
Mahesh Babu and Samantha-starrer Brahmotsavam is our go-to family entertainer. Vennela Kishore’s character ‘LILLY’ meets us much later in the film, but makes the wait worth it.
4. Bruce Lee: The Fighter
Vennela Kishore is too good at being bad and Ram Charan, Rakulpreet Singh-starrer Bruce Lee: The Fighter is proof enough.
5. Duvvada Jagannatham
Allu Arjun and Vennela Kishore make a curiously kickass pair in Duvvada Jagannatham. Their chemistry and characters are what we call #EntertainmentGoals.
6. Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada
This actor’s choice of roles goes from funny to crazy and to weird, in moments. We assume the actor adds character to his on-screen personalities. Here’s Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada for you to believe us.
7. Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India
When you see Vennela Kishore, you will expect a comedy. But sometimes, a bizarre situation and comedic elements can be lethal. But this man right here makes it all funny and how! Take a look at Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India for instance.
8. Pandaga Chesko
After watching Ram Potheneni’s Pandaga Chesko we really want a friend-cum-assistant like Vennela Kishore. Because… he provides you with unending moral support and will definitely set new standards for ‘support system’.
9. Rarandoi Veduka Chudham
Yet another short role that lives long and lingers on mind for longer. In Naga Chaitanya’s Rarandoi Veduka Chudham, Vennela Kishore is a delight.
Be a Vennela Kishore to your Bellamkonda Srinivas like in the film Saakshyam. We can’t stress enough of who brilliant of a friend he makes on-screen. Of course… we’ve heard many stories too.
This picture above is from the scene when Vennela Kishore makes an entry in the Naga Chaitanya and Sunil starrer-Tadakha. Need we say more?
12. Sailaja Reddy Alludu
We wonder how this man manages to be cute, endearing, caring and an obedient assistant all the time? You might find yourself wanting someone like him after watching Ramya Krishnan starrer Sailaja Reddy Alludu.
13. Brother of Bommali
No matter how good looking, a sleazy man is always hated and looked down upon, in films and otherwise. But in Allari Naresh’s Brother of Bommali, you will find yourself looking forward to seeing him mess up on the screen.
Ever found a man who is uptight to be funny? No? Us, neither. But hey! Have you watched Nagarjuna and Nani’s Devadas? Because Vennela Kishore is here to change it.
Last of the lot but not the least! Two BFFs, Vennela Kishore and Rahul Ravindran featured in Dhrusti which will blow your mind on too many levels. A crime thriller, this film keeps you at the edge of the seat while also making you laugh at giggle – courtesy of the birthday boy.
We wish the actor the happiest birthday and many more successes ahead!
