When Dinakar Togudeepa approached him with an offer, Dharma readily accepted it despite the fact that it is a negative role. He says people like him more when they come to know that he is the son of Keerthiraj, who also played negative roles throughout his career.
After Navagraha was released, Dharma has been getting many offers from top directors and producers. Dharma is thankful to Dinakar for giving him a song sequence superceding seniors like Darshan.
Navagraha had nine heroes, all sons of villains in Kannada cinema Dharma, son of Keerthiraj, was one among them. The huge star cast of the film did not deter Dharma from displaying his acting skills and he is getting more popular day by day after the release of the film a few weeks ago.
