Film career

Kommineni was an ardent fan of cinema from an early age. He started as an actor in Telugu cinema playing villains. During the period, his dialogue delivery in an aptly modulated reverberating voice bought him wide recognition. He portrayed a hero in the picture “Goppavari Gotralu”. Subsequently he acted in about 50 films, including Shri Krishna Pandaviyam, Thatha Manavadu (1972), and Samsaram Sagaram.

He served as a director for the film Devathalara Deevinchandi, the maiden production by artist Giri Babu, and also for Babu's second picture, Simha Gharjana. The film Thayaramma Bangarayya, produced by Edida Nageshwara Rao on the Poornodaya banner, was a hit. Later it was remade in the Tamil language with Sivaji Ganesan as Satyamsundaram. Kommineni also directed Koteeswarudu, starring Akkineni Nageswara Rao; Cheyyethi Jai Kottu, starring Krishnam Raju; Lakshmipooja; and Mantradandam. Over a period of thirty years, Kommineni Seshagiri Rao directed around 30 films during his career.

He died on December 5, 2008 at Chennai due to multiple organ failure disease. He was survived by a wife, four sons and one daughter.
