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.
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.
