Allari Naresh was born on June 30, 1982 in Madras. His father was the late filmmaker EVV Satyanarayana. Allari Naresh’s family hails from Korumamidi village, West Godavari district. Allari Naresh’s brother Aryan Rajesh is also an actor in Telugu Film Industry. Naresh’s primary education was done in Chennai. He used to go to attend the shootings with his father and used to work as assistant director on the set. EVV planned to make Rajesh an actor and Naresh a director but Naresh dreamed of becoming a hero from a very young age.
Impressed by Naresh’s height, legendary actor Amitabh Bacchan advised EVV to make him a hero. Ever since then the desire to be a hero has grown stronger in Naresh. In 2002, Ravi Babu made his directorial debut casting Naresh as the hero in the movie ‘Allari’. The film was a blockbuster success. Naresh’s name was later changed to Allari Naresh following the success of his debut flick. In the same year, Naresh hit a hat trick as the films ‘Thottigang’ and ‘Dhanalakshmi I Love You’ were also successful.
In 2004 he played the role of a psycho antagonist in the movie ‘Nenu’. Despite his top-notch performance the film was a commercial failure. This hit Naresh hard, he went into depression for 3 months but somehow he recovered with his father’s motivation. Then he made the movie ‘Nuvvante Nakishtam’ in 2005 but even that did not succeed. Subsequent films, such as Danger and Party, also stood as disasters.
In 2007 Naresh bounced back with his film ‘Kitakitalu’ directed by EVV, the film brought 10 times profits to the makers. Then after that he made a slew of comedy movies like ‘Gopi Goda Mida Pilli’ ‘Sundarakaanda’ ‘Seemashastri’ ‘Pellaindi Kaani’. Industry pundits referred to him as this generation’s Rajendra Prasad. Director Krish’s ‘Gamyam’ movie is a turning point in his career. He won Nandi and Filmfare awards for his role as ‘Gaali Seenu’ in the film. After that, films like Shambho Shiva Shambho and Nandi brought good name to Allari Naresh.
In 2008 he made a total of 8 films in a single year. 7 films in 2010 and 5 films in 2011 in a short span of time. In such a short period of time, only Naresh was able to achieve this feat in this generation.
