Meet The Mythri Movie Makers: Their Ambitious Plan To Make India's Most Expensive Movie Ever

In Tollywood, there are large production houses like Ramanaidu Studios and Annapurna Studios, as well as prominent producers like Dil Raju, Arvind, Danayya, etc.

However, in the past few years, a relatively unheard-of movie company called Mythri Movie Makers has stepped in and challenged these large producers' hegemony like never before.  Read our special, exclusive story to learn more about Mythri Movie Makers.

Mythri Movie Makers began with a bang after entering with little to no fanfare and producing a blockbuster starring the greatest actor in Tollywood. They are currently working on a PAN India movie to gain recognition across the whole country.

The idea of Mythri Movie Makers was born in the mind of Naveen Yerneni Hailing from Vijayawada, he settled in America and became a movie distributor there.

How the Idea was born?

Since he was a little child, he has enjoyed Telugu films, and this has continued even after he went to America. And thank God, he dabbled in the business  of making movies.

He shared his idea with his friends Ravi Shankar and Mohan Cherukuri and started working on their production banner in 2012.

In 2012,  Naveen Yerneni met director Koratala Siva while shooting Mirchi. He has been hearing stories since then. In 2015, a banner was set up in the name of Mythri Movie Makers

In 2015, the movie Srimanthudu with Tollywood legend Mahesh Babu and director Koratala Siva, who was previously their known acquaintance, was announced. The movie, which had  a roughly Rs. 70 crore budget, grossed more than Rs. 140 crore and became  a blockbuster.

First Entry with Grand Budget

When questioned about the first movie's large budget, You were not afraid? Naveen Yerneni asserts that he produced a huge-budget film to help him overcome his fear of pursuing film productions.

Why Big Budget with the first film?

Superstar Krishna is a favorite of Naveen Yerneni. However, they say that this was not the reason they met. Because of our relationship with Koratala, we got to know Mahesh. Why ‘Mahesh Babu’ seemed to enjoy us is beyond me, we're just lucky, says Naveen.

Your relationship with Mahesh?

The following year, Janatha Garage, starring Jr. NTR and Mohanlal and directed by Koratala once more, was produced by Mytri Movie Makers. It was a huge success. It cost between 40 and 50 crores to make, and it has made about 140+ crores.

The second Film is also  a Blockbuster

Their third movie, 'Rangasthalam' was helmed by talented director Sukumar in 2018. This movie, which had a 60 crore rupee budget, made 216 crores, generating a wave of revenues for the filmmakers.

Blockbuster Hattrick

Naveen Yerneni will spend six months  in India and another six months  in America. Naveen will handle  the project's logistics, finances, post-production, and movie promotions. Mohan supports Naveen in all these areas. Ravi Shankar manages and takes care of the actual production of the film.

Who will do what?

In 2018, they produced blockbusters like Rangasthalam and also tasted defeat as Srinu Vaitla's Amar Akbar Antony, starring Ravi Teja, and Chandu Mondeti's Savyasachi, starring Naga Chaitanya, bombed at the box office.

Mythri got hit by the Law of Averages.

After that, in 2019, they did films such as ‘Chitralahari’, Dear Comrade, Gang Leader, and  ‘Mathu Vadalara’. In this, ‘Mathu Vadalara’ made with a modest budget of just Rs. 2.1 crores became hugely successful.

Following their success at the box office in Tollywood with a small movie called "Uppena" in 2021, they stunned everyone in India with "Pushpa." It was not only Allu Arjun's highest-grossing film, but it also catapulted him to instant celebrity throughout India.

Pushpa helped  ‘Mythri’ well-known throughout the entire world in addition to India. Devi Sri Prasad's pulse-beating songs, along with Sukumar's direction and Allu Arjun's performance, made Pushpa achieve immense success globally.

In 2022, ‘Mythri’ once again teamed up with Mahesh Babu for ‘Sarkaru Vaari Paata’, It was a success at the box office. But after that the other three movies that came out that year i.e. ‘Ante Sundaranaki’, Happy Birthday  'Aa Ammayi Gurinchi Meeku Cheppali' were not that successful.

In 2022

There were rumors at the time that Mythri and Dil Raju had a fight that was detrimental to them. Dilraju, however, asserted that little conflicts are common in business and they both are fine.

Relationship with Allu Aravind and Dil Raju?

Both of this year's Sankranti releases, "Waltair Veerayya" and "Veera Simha Reddy," did well. While filming Rangasthalam, 'Mythri'  fixated on working on a Chiranjeevi starrer, and they have now accomplished that goal with 'Waltair Veerayya'.

2023 belongs to Mythri

They have "Amigos" starring Kalyan Ram, which will be released in a few days. The filming for Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha's "Khushi" is about to wrap up.

Their lineup of movies in 2023 will push them to the next level. Here are those.

‘Mythri’ to Next Level

'Pushpa-2'...! One of the most awaited films in India is this one starring Allu Arjun. Sukumar is working extremely hard to make this movie fantastic. Additionally, he is altering the narrative to ensure that part 2 does not fall short of the first. In Vizag, a new schedule for this film has started.


Naveen Yerneni believes that the upcoming movie ‘Ustad Bhagat Singh’' will be 100 times bigger than ‘Gabbar Singh’,  with the crazy combination of Harish Shankar and Pawan Kalyan. As  a purely commercial movie, they are confident that this movie will break all the box office records.

Ustad Bhagat Singh

In this film, Prashanth Neel, who with KGF became a pan-Indian filmmaker, and NTR, who shot to international renown with RRR will collaborate together. Prashant is currently preoccupied with the film "Salaar", they will begin production on this movie after this is finished.


This time, Mythri will work with Buchibabu Sana, who has already proven himself in the box office success of the low-budget movie "Uppena." The protagonist in this story is Ram Charan, who gained international recognition in RRR alongside NTR.


Prabhas & Hrithik Roshan will starred in the movie and filmmaker Siddharth Anand will direct the biggest film in Indian cinema history, which will be produced by Mythri.

The biggest movie in the history of Indian cinema

Siddharth Anand's previous movie, "Pathaan," was a huge box-office hit. Although there hasn't been an official announcement for this movie yet, it seems like everything is almost ready.

In an interview, Naveen Yerneni states that they would definitely make a movie with "Matala Mantrikudu’ Trivikram.  We must wait to see when it will come and how "Mythri Movie Makers" will dominate the box office going forward.
