Ananda Chakrapani (ఆనంద చక్రపాణి) is an Indian actor who works in Telugu-language films. He garnered acclaim for his performance in Mallesham (2019).
He made his film debut with B. Narsing Rao's award-winning film Daasi (1988); but the film failed to give him a breakthrough as an actor. He landed the role in Daasi after he met Devipriya, one of the screenplay writers for Daasi. Devipriya recommended him to Narsing Rao. In 2013, he began directing a documentary titled Waiting for Death about the impact of fluorosis on people living in his hometown of Nalgonda. Twenty-five years after Daasi, he was signed to play the role of Chintakindi Mallesham's father in Mallesham (2019). He received the role after Laxman Aelay, the production designer for Mallesham, suggested his name to the director Raj. Since Raj was in the United States at the time, the audition was conducted by his assistant. Although Ananda Chakrapani was unsuccessful in his initial audition, he requested for a second audition and was selected by Raj's assistant. His performance in Mallesham enabled him to receive further film offers.
