The Jandhyala brand of humour is eternal and the Telugu film industry will always cherish and remember the clean comedy churned out by the legendry director and writer in this plethora of films, said Tollywood actor Kota Sankara Sarma here on Saturday.

Rich tributes were paid to the late director on his ninth death anniversary in the function organised by Kalanjali, a city-based cultural organisation, in which several stage, film and television artistes paid floral tributes to Jandhyala Subrahmanya Sastry at Thummalapallivari Kshetrayya Kalakshetram.

Late Jandhyala's wife Annapurna attended the function while his twin-daughters Sahiti and Sampada did not attend owing to academic work. Kalanjali president A.V. Ramana, Abhiruchi Cultural Organisation president P. Krishnaji, founder-president P. Panduranga Rao and others attended the function.
