College Bug bites Dharmavarapu Subramanyam

Dharmavarapu Subramanyam The latest super hit movie 'Nuvvu Nenu' gave Dharmavarapu Subramanyam a very curious kind of popularity. Apart from being a solid break, the film has brought the actor a deluge of offers; all similar to the one he played in Nuvvu Nenu. Now he is a very busy 'lecturer' what with a more than half-a-dozen roles of the same character landing up in his lap. As the trend of youth films is likely to continue for a while, Dharmavarapu can be sure of more and more 'lecturer' postings in the near future. Considering that he is a talented actor with a flair for subtle humor, Dharmavarapu need not really worry about the offers. From the small screen to big one, it was a not-so-long journey for Dharmavarapu and as comedy enjoys prominent position in Telugu film scripts, comedians will always have more and more avenues opening up before them.
