Tollywood Actor & Comedian Venu Madhav Is No More
Venu Madhav born in Kodad town in Telangana, Venu Madhav was a prestigious mimicry artist before trying out his luck in movies with a minor role in Sampradayam. With entertaining roles in super hit movies like Master, Tholi Prema, Suswagatham, and Thammudu, the comedian roused to the top in a limited capacity to focus time. He packed away the Nandi Award for his hilarious performance of Tiger Satti in VV Vinayak’s Lakshmi (2006).
