Tarun, who debuted in Anjali, the classic Mani Ratnam film about a mentally challenged toddler, won a National Award for his performance in the film. Though he came back as a hero, his first successful hit Telugu film was Nuvve Kavali (2000). His innocent open face and good looks made him an instant magnet for college girls.
But lately, he has not been able to get any good films under big banners. Though Sasirekha Parinayam is a hit, it is a Genelia show all the way, as even director Krishna Vamsi acknowledged it recently.
Since his career is in a slump, Tarun has decided to venture into a business and what better than the hospitality arena with a high-profile pub located at one of the poshest places in Hyderabad – Banjara Hills.
Tarun's pub 'ON' will start at Road No 2, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.
