His impact, from the famous Ramoji Film City to the renowned Eenadu newspaper (revolution in the newspaper industry), will inspire future generations. Villagers of Pedaparupudi, located in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh, mourned the demise of their beloved man Cherukuri Ramoji Rao, a businessman, and the founder of Ramoji Film City, Eenadu Group and several other industries.

Renowned film producer Ramoji Rao, head of Ramoji Group (the world’s largest film production facilitators) and ETV Network, passed away at 87 due to Cardiovascular Disease.

Cherukuri Ramoji Rao was born on 16 November 1936 in the Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh, India, into an agricultural family. After education, he with his enterprising spirit and passion for entrepreneurship established several great ventures.

His contributions to Telugu cinema have been recognized with various Filmfare Awards, including those for Best Film and Lifetime Achievement. In addition, his commitment to excellence has been recognized by the Nandi Awards, where several of his films have received the top honors in various categories.

  • The President also expressed her condolences on the demise of Shri Ramoji Rao, calling him a giant of the media and entertainment sector. She said, “My sympathies are with his family and his admirers. The industry has lost a visionary that will be difficult to replace”.
  • The Prime Minister shared his profound sorrow on his demise by writing condolence on X. He said in his note that “He was a visionary who revolutionized the Indian media”.
  • Actor Chiranjeevi also expressed his deepest condolences and said that it was a loss equal to a mountain for all of them. 
  • Actor Manoj Manchu and Sudheer Babu penned some really touching messages appreciating the man’s journey and the kind of influence he had on the lives and the media and movie world.
  • Famous Telugu actor Jr. NTR, too, expressed sorrow by saying that Ramoji Rao was a visionary and one in a million.

When one considers his life and achievements, it is clear that Ramoji Rao was an outstanding entrepreneur, who was extremely influential in the media and business world. But on the other hand, from a spiritual perspective, one also realizes that his life had gone completely wasted without doing true devotion. If one does not search for true spirituality in his human life and achieves only material achievements, then consider that his human life is wasted because even after death that soul will have to suffer the consequences of his karma. 

Real wealth is created by chanting the name of God. Through this spiritual wealth, a soul can go to that imperishable place where there is no birth and death, the same thing is quoted in Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 18, Verse 66, where Shri Krishan Ji is preaching to Arjun that, “Arjun you go and take refuge in that Supreme God. By going in His refuge and attaining that God, you will be free from the cycle of birth and death.” That Supreme place is called Satlok.

In the present time, Sant Rampal ji Maharaj Ji is the only True Guide who teaches spiritual knowledge and the method to make this human life successful. It is in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4, Verse 32, 34 that the complete Saint, provides the correct devotional method of worship and by performing that, one can attain salvation. He is explaining the method of worship prescribed in our spiritual texts. Don’t delay, today is the time to take initiation (Naam Diksha) from Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj ji and escape from the cycle of birth and death. For more information visit Jagatgururampalji.org
