Last Updated: 02.01 PM, Nov 11, 2023


Chandra Mohan had a fantastic career as an actor in Telugu cinema in terms of his role-variety and his passing away today leaves a void in the fraternity and in the hearts of his fans and film buffs worldwide. His legacy is probably comparable only to that of the inimitable Kaikala Satyanarayana in Telugu. Humans may not be immortal, but art certainly is.

While mourning his death, it’s equally important for us to recollect and revisit his career-best performances as an actor over the years. Here are some of the finest works you could watch on OTT.

Sukha Dukhalu

Perhaps the game-changer in Chandra Mohan’s career, Sukha Dukhalu, an adaptation of the Tamil play Major Chandrakanth, the veteran was outstanding as the grieving brother who’s committed to avenging his sister’s career.
