Kranthi Kumar, born in a remote village in Anantapur District, has made his way to the limelight in Tollywood film industry as a successful Art Director. Having completed three diplomas and a PG (Theatre) from Telugu University, his hard work and sheer dedication have led him to bag the Nandi award for Best Set Designer in 2014-15.

Kranthi Kumar’s passion for films began at a tender age, inspired by listening to various film scores on the radio and reading historical fiction books.
