Like all film artistes, Tarun also experienced failures in his career and took some time to get back to form. He started his second innings with Nava Vasantham which failed to do well. However, his recent film Bhale Dongalu with Ileana, did some good business and proved a commercial hit.
He is now acting in Krishnavamsi's Journey. The Tarun-Sattibabu project will begin after the completion of Krishnavamsi's film.
