His successful debut came with the delightful slice-of-life comedy Ondu Motteya Kathe (2017). He then came out with the violent crime drama Garuda Gaman Vrishabha Vahana (2021), which propelled him into stardom.
Toby is another crime drama which is also written by him. The trailers hint at him being another underdog who is treated unfairly by the powers that be. He stars in the film along with Chaithra J Achar.
“I am not an underdog. I hope people don’t see me as one because I can bite hard. I am a dog. Jokes apart, I don't really have issues if the audience sees me in any way. But I want some of the people who are close to me to not see me that way because I have an army”.
“The people see me as a star, I don’t. I am an actor because I act. I have come here to work. I will use the resources that stardom gets me and my team to make a film. I cannot deny that. I don’t believe in that distinction between an actor and a star persona.
“It is not possible for me to write perfect characters,” “I have always seen myself in my characters, be it negative or neutral roles. I don’t usually create purely positive characters. More than that, I feel art should lead to some amount of introspection.
