Brahmanandam, who started his career with a brief role in Jandhyala's 1986 Telugu comedy "Chantabbai", has starred in over 1,000 films.
"I entered the industry two years before I got my first break in 'Chantabbai'. Since then, it has been a memorable journey with ups and downs. I will continue to entertain my fans as long as sky and earth last," Brahmanandam told IANS.
"It will be unfair on my part if I credit my success only to directors and producers. From light boys to make-up artists to even our caterer on sets, I'm indebted to all these people who have stayed with me through thick and thin," he added.
Brahmanandam is one of the few actors in the country to have starred in over 1,000 films, predominantly in Telugu.
The 58-year-old is also a recipient of the coveted Padma Shri award.
He is currently busy with multiple projects in Telugu as well as Tamil.
