C. V. Sridhar and Sadagopan were childhood friends since their schooldays in St. Joseph's High School, Chengalpattu. Both were playwrights; Sridhar wrote stage plays and played the hero while Sadagopan wrote the humorous parts and played the comedian. Later, when Sridhar had the opportunity to direct a film, he asked Sadagopan to join him and produce the comedy track. The film Kalyana Parisu (1959) was a hit and Sridhar started his own production house, Chitralaya Pictures. Sadagopan became popularly known as 'Chitralaya' Gopu.

He received the Kalaimamani Award from Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa in 1992.

He directed and acted in television forays, such as Washingtonil Thirumanam, which was shot in the U.S. and was also successful.
