P J Sarma is one of the most revered actors and dubbing artistes that the Telugu cinema has produced. All his three sons - Ayyappa, Sai Kumar and Ravi Shankar - have made their mark across multiple industries. The third generation too, thanks to Aadi Sai Kumar (son of Sai Kumar) is continuing their legacy. Now, Aadi’s son and P Ravi Shankar’s son Advay is set to make his acting debut.


P Ravi Shankar, much like his father has an unmatched reputation as a dubbing artiste and an actor equally. Interestingly, he will also be wielding the megaphone as he introduces his son Advay into films. Advay’s acting debut is titled Subrahmanyaa, a pan-Indian film that’ll simultaneously release in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Hindi languages.

Subrahmanyaa is produced by Thirumal Reddy and Anil Kadiyala under SG Movie Makers, the banner that earlier backed Kartikeya’s actioner Guna 369. The poster, released by the makers on Monday, suggests that it’ll be a mystical thriller revolving around an ancient temple. Advay, donning a khaki avatar, carries flambeau with him and a book in the poster.

Praveena Kadiyala and Rama Lakshmi are the presenters of the film which will be made on a huge scale. Arjun Reddy cinematographer Raj Thota will crank the camera for the film with Ravi Basrur coming on board as the composer. Vijay M Kumar is the editor and Maasti is the dialogue writer. Sapta Sagaradaache Ello fame Ullas Hydur is the production designer.

Besides his son’s debut, P Ravi Shankar was in the news recently for his impactful appearance in the Nandamuri Balakrishna, Sreeleela starrer Bhagavanth Kesari, directed by Anil Ravipudi. Some of his other releases this year were Kranti, Pentagon in Kannada and Veera Simha Reddy, Bholaa Shankar in Telugu. He had also dubbed for Sanjay Dutt’s character in Leo in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada.
