Ananda has also worked with many many big actors in his career. However, his role in “Sooryavansham” gave him a major recognition. As per a report, Ananda has been away from acting for quite some time now. He is the grandson of the famous playback singer P. B. Srinivas. In 1997, Ananda got the Nandi Award for Best Child Actor for his role in “Priyaragalu”.
Who would have imagined then that this child artist would grow up to become such a handsome hunk? We still hope to see him back in the movie business.
