Amit Bhragav obviously comes from that band of gifted youngsters who are not only oozing with talent but have the self confidence to brandish it to their best advantage. Although holding an obviously North Indian name, his base has been the South, shuttling between the Kannada and Tamil film industries with consummate ease. For people like him it is quite often that they are a little foggy about where their real interests lie, and for him his childhood desire was to become a lawyer so that he could get lot of opportunities to talk, argue and elaborate things. But a chance encounter with director B Jay shree who offered him a role in the play “Sadarame”, changed his entire life. It suddenly dawned on him that it was drama that he wanted all the time and not the role of a lawyer that he was dreaming of.
He grew so fond of theatre that he soon formed his own group called Pratikriyaand directed his first play in Kannada, loosely based on one of Moliere’s classics. But “Sadarame” really was the one play that launched him on to bigger arenas, starting with the role of Rama in the vastly popular TV serial “Seethe Rama Katha Hridayam”. After that he never looked back and his self confidence grew steadily enabling him to embark into Tamil cinema, and moving over to Chennai in 2012. He has now become a regular star both in Tamil cinema as well as on TV, having appeared in Tamil movies like“
Vizhi Moodi Yosithal” and “
Yennamo Yedho” andhaving films like “
Yennai Arindhaal”in the pipeline. With his role in the Hindi movie “
2 States”,based on
Chetan Bhagat novel he has already received national recognition for himself.
