Chennai, Jan 25 — Southern actor Rana Daggubati, grandson of producer D. Rama Naidu, is extremely happy about his grandfather being awarded the Padma Bhushan, saying it is a motivation for him too.

"It is a great moment for all of us in the family. He has been a guiding force for all of us and such achievements make us proud and motivated," Rana told IANS.

The veteran producer was named for the award on the eve of 64th Republic Day. He was nominated for the prestigious award by the Andhra Pradesh government in November last year.

In 1963, Naidu produced his first Telugu film titled "Anuragam" starring Jaggaiah and P. Bhanumathi. Later, he made Telugu films "Ramudu Bheemudu", "Papa Kosam", "Prem Nagar", and "Ahana Pellanta" among many more.

He has also produced movies in Hindi, English, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam Oriya and Assamese, all under his banner Suresh Productions.

His son, Telugu actor Venkatesh, is one of the leading heroes in the industry while his eldest son, Suresh Babu manages their home banner Suresh Productions.
