Mullapudi Venkata Ramana known as Mullapudi Ramana is a Telugu writer who is known for his hilarious style of writing. Ramana was born in a middle class traditional family and his childhood was spent in Dhowaleswaram near Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh. During his studies Ramana had shown interest for literature in Telugu and inclination in writing up short but effective storyline. During these days he met Bapu and both became unconditional friends where Ramana was goot at write ups and Bapu at painting and caricature drawing. Slowly they excelled their talent and entered into films. 


Ramana created a child character called Budugu. Many excellent characters have been penned by Ramana in the films directed by Bapu. The famous characters include Radha Gopalam, Cotractor in Muthayala Muggu and Tutthi in Mister Pellam. Ramana shortly grabbed a name for his versatile and heart touching writing. Ramana had a 60 year association with director Bapu. While Bapu achieved much of his fame sticking to a subtle style of artistic elegance. Beginning as an illustrator-story writer team, Bapu and Ramana then turned into a film-director-writer duo and they have contributed immensely to the enrichment of Telugu cultural ethos through literature and cinema.
