  • He started working in theatre plays since he was in class 10.
  • In an interview, while talking about his best theatre plays, he said,

Acting in the play ‘Nagamandala’ was a wonderful experience. The play was originally written by Girish Karnad and Dr DSN Murthy made it in Telugu. I was given a typical role with two different voices. The performance was appreciated by the connoisseurs as well as the public on that day including the media. Similarly, Dr Murthy has chosen me for another play ‘Agni varsha’, which was also written by Girish Karnad. I will be ever grateful to Dr DSN Murthy for his support to perform these two plays.”
