Hyderabad, Jan 27 (IANS) Just a day after being named for the Padma Shri, veteran Telugu director Bapu aka Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana was hospitalised after he complained of uneasiness. However, his brother says there is nothing to worry.

The 79-year-old was Saturday night admitted to the Star Hospital here after he claimed that he was feeling uneasy.

"There's absolutely nothing to worry. People thronged to his house in Hyderabad after they came to know that he was awarded the Padma Shri. He couldn't take so much of attention and thus started feeling uneasy," Shankaranarayana, a brother of Bapu, told IANS.

"I spoke to my brother this morning and he is doing fine. The doctors have advised him day-long rest in the hospital," he added.

Bapu is likely to be discharged Sunday evening.

Tourism Minister and actor Chiranjeevi and veteran producer Allu Aravind visited Bapu in the hospital.

Bapu started making films in 1967, a year when he made his first Telugu movie "Sakshi" with superstar Krishna.

In a career spanning over four decades, he has directed many Telugu films and five of them - "Mutayala Muggu", "Balaraju Katha", "Andala Ramudu", "Pelli Pustakam", and "Sri Rama Rajyam", won National Awards.
