A pass-out of National School of Drama, he made his foray into Ollywood with ‘Chilika Tire’ as a rebellious hero. However, ‘Nagaphasa’ in which he played a villain was released first. He went on to essay several character roles after the 1982 film ‘Kaberi’ in which he played the second lead to Sriram Panda. ‘Jaga Hatare Pagha’ was one of his popular films.
