Dhananjay is a South Indian actor who is predominately seen in  Kannada films. He is the latest heartthrob in Sandalwood, who was a techie in Infosys. At a young age, he was very much active in theatre, he spent many days visiting  Rangayana theater in  Mysore for want of roles that he had dreamt of performing on the stage.  But he also completed his degree in engineering and was a rank-holder and even got a job in Infosys to take care of his family. 

But he quit his job to pursue his dream of making his name as an actor on the silver screen. But he had to struggle to evolve as an artist. The techie-turned actor was not satisfied with his job and had an inner urge of acting. Hence, he did some prominent roles in many plays that were staged by Rangayana Theater in Mysore. It was then a film-maker Guruprasad spotted him and offered him a role in a film ‘ Director’s Special’. 

But before getting a break in cinema, he was recognised by a Germany Choreographer Christian Stuckl, who shot the promotional dances of FIFA World Cup. He visited a workshop with him in Germany and learnt to act from him too. This skill helped him a lot in movies. Subsequently, he was offered a lead role in film Huccha by Prakash Rao and got another lead character role in film Rhaate directed by A. P. Arjun.  A later top producer like  Jayanna - Bhogendra roped him to do the title role of Boxer, which was directed by Preetham Gubbi.  

Dhananjay’s latest film Badmaash is awaiting release. Already a film Vijayaditya’s teaser is released and has gone viral in networking sites. Eventually, Badmaash’s first look teaser was also released on his recent birthday with much fanfare. The industry is hopeful his recent movies such as Jessie, Badmash, Vijayaditya, Boxer will click well in box-office. The actor seems to gain gradually more popularity and has been signed for five films which await release in theatres now. His success in movies can easily overtake other prominent actors in Sandalwood now. The actor is all set to become a perfect superstar in Sandalwood with his strong acting skills and a massive fan base that he has now in Karnataka.
