He was regarded as an unlikely hero when he debuted as a male lead in 2000. Silencing his detractors, Sri Hari went on to act in dozens of films as the lead. The going got tough when flops came in a row. When he was threateningly losing his standing, Nuvvosthanante Nennodantana happened. There was no looking back for the supporting actor Sri Hari, who has been famously seen in films like Dhee, King, Don Seenu, Magadheera and Brindavanam, among others.
Not many know that Sri Hari is often interested in acting in non-Telugu films as well. His next Kannada film, Ko Ko, is set to release this Friday (Dec. 23). He says, "I am not easy with Kannada. I practised the dialogues, which were given to me in Telugu. Any day, I am comfortable doing a Telugu film." The actor has a dream role: Circuit of the Munnabhai series.
Coming to Ko Ko, it has music by Ramana Gogula. Settled in Bangalore, the musician is trying his luck in Sandalwood. It is said that post-Boni, which was produced by him, he is not very keen on Telugu films.
