Chakravarthy, who made his debut along with Ramgopal Varma in Siva earned good recognition among the audiences. He played different roles as a small time artist, hero and villain on the screen and suddenly disappeared from the Telugu film industry to work as an associate with his mentor Ramgopal Varma. He tried his hand in direction for a couple of films in Bollywood too. After watching the success of Pokiri where the hero played undercover cop, he prepared an excellent subject with action backdrop and clash between mafia and the police on similar lines. He chose Jagapatibabu as his hero and he himself too played a role in this movie. Not only on the screen, but off the screen also, he has proven his mettle with Homam.
