His last major role in Telugu was as villain in Nagarjuna's Hello Brother. This Bharathiraja find (whose real name Kumaresan was changed for the screen by the great director) did a few films in Telugu but focused his energies more in Tamil. He has portrayed a multitude of roles like hero, character artist and villain in Tamil films.
In his next Telugu movie, Napoleon is essaying a villain's role; Srikanth is playing the lead and Satya, Dasari's assistant, will make his directorial debut. This will be Srikanth's 99th film; shooting is planned to begin in August.
