Vedam Nagaiah played the role of Ramulu, a poor grandad, who had to sell his daughter-in-law's kidney, in order to repay a debt to a landlord. Nagaiah played the role to the hilt. Talking about his life, Nagaiah recalled his marriage to a very young girl and how he took care of her. Unfortunately, he outlived his wife, which pains him. Nagaiah recollected his association with Tollywood superstar, Akkineni Nagarjuna. He lives with his son in his hometown, and is reasonably well-off for his age.
