Personal Life

Being born in Hyderabad, India, on May 15, he was brought up and finished his education in Chennai. He is the nephew of Telugu producer Sravanti Ravi Kishore.

Ram started his acting career at a very young age of 12 years. He acted in a short film by the name ‘ID’ in Tamil and was awarded “The Best Actor” award among the 120 films screened from 60 countries at the European Film Festival conducted at Otten, Switzerland!

He is obsessed with the career option of becoming an actor with a profound commitment and zeal. His strenuous efforts, hard work…almost 18 hours a day, and the passion for acting resulted into him being identified by renowned director and producer Mr. Y.V.S Chowdary, a perfectionist to the core, for making his film Devadasu. Ram grabbed the opportunity provided to him and continued his commitment, sincerity and dedication in performing the lead role of the film Devadasu.

Career

Ram, the promising young star, has attained glory with his maiden film in Telugu Devadasu. The Telugu film industry suddenly found a young and dynamic person with a lot of acting ability, extreme ease at dancing skills and also the power of portraying action scenes too. He is known to be the 'Youngest Hero of the South'. The Telugu film industry noticed the new talent with awe and admiration. And the audience made it a big block-buster creating a history of running 175 days in 17 centres for a debutant hero.

His performance in the film got him the real recognition when he got a second opportunity in the film Jagadam, from another perfectionist director, Mr. Sukumar. It was a crazy project with much expectation and did a business of around 14 crores, which again is a record for a new-comer. Even though it did not fare well at the box office, Ram got much critical acclaim for his performance.

Then he did his third film Ready for his home banner 'Sri Sravanthi Movies', which turned out to be another block-buster for him and a top grosser in the USA. It took him to a different level and established him as one of the top heros in Tollywood.

His fourth film, Maska, had high expectations due to his earlier hits. Maska co-starred Hansika and Sheela. It was released on January 14, 2009. It was directed by B. Gopal (Samarasimha Reddy, Indra fame). It was produced by 'Movie Special' Raju. It was a surprising combination with Chakri as a music director. The music reached its expectations.

This movie, even though was not the biggest hit in Ram's career, had massive openings and collected more than his previous films, thus making him a superstar.
