He has worked in Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada movies.

    His acting skills were critically acclaimed, but he did not get much recognition in the film industry until he appeared as ‘Victor’ in the 2015 Tamil film Yennai Arindhaal. He tasted this success after a long 17 years. He worked hard in the gym to look perfect for this role, and he bagged many awards for his performance in the movie.

     

    He started his own production company ‘In Cinemas Entertainment (ICE)’ in 2015.
