Kannamba was born in 1912 at Eluru. She entered the stage through Novel Stage Show Academy at a very yo
ung age of 13. On stage she performed many characters such as Sati savitri, Anasuya, Chandramati. Also her gramophone record - krishnam bhaje radha - became a big hit and created records in the sales.

Kannamba was introduced to the cine field in 1935 with the film Harischandra directed by Sri P.Pullayya. She acted in more than 150 films in Telugu and Tamil. She won accolades and praises for her roles in Draupadi Vastrapaharanam, Kanakadhara, Saranagadha
ra, Grihalakshmi, Chandika etc. Kannamba did the title role of Kannagi in Tamil with unparalleled ease and gained so much popularity. She is also popular for her role in Palnati Yuddam as Nayakuralu Nagamma. Govindarajula Subbarao acted as Brahmanaidu in that movie.

ueen and mother of NTR, she became the unparalleled queen mother of Telugu film industry. She did the same role in Tamil also queen mother in a movie titled Manohara with Sivaji Ganeshan in the lead.

It was widely known in those days that Kannamba could deliver dialogues of pages-together in a single take and at the same time express navarasalu. Her negatively shaded Mother-in-law character in Sakkubhai, and generous, kindhearted character as Jodhbahi in Anarkali, are few examples to quote of this great actress.
