Bharat Bhupatiraju better known as Bharat is an up and coming Telugu film actor who got his break in the industry by playing the younger version of veteran actor Ravi Teja in Na Autograph. Ravi Teja happens to also be his real life uncle. After that he acted as student in Manodu, who passes the tenth grade but can't go ahead with further studies due to financial problems. The film Tenth Class was made by S.P. Entertainments and directed by Chandu and produced by Venkata Shyam Prasad.
I want to be proud of my films, all my films. Again, whether a film is good or bad doesn't reflect commercial success. I judge films on how they justify my conviction in them. It is hugely gratifying when they do, Tenth Class is running to packed houses and Bharat is now inundated with offers. I am open to doing films but they should have something nice to impart. I've done only four films so far and I like to choose my roles carefully. I have no intention of leaving my studies, says the 19-year-old engineering graduate who stepped into cinema by chance.
Producer M.S. Raju saw the preview of Na Autograph and roped in the boy with vulnerable looks to act in Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana. Bharat says he stepped into films during his summer holidays. He says, I haven't made any plans yet. Whether I do another Telugu film or not depends solely on the work I am offered post Tenth Class. I am in no hurry to prove myself to anyone. A good script would be a great icing on the cake. Let's see. His film Manodu received lukewarm ratings. The film was shot in just 17 days. The rising star loves to watch Venkatesh, Pawan Kalyan and Ravi Teja's films in his free time and when he thinks he's had enough, he just packs his bags and retreats to the hills for a holiday. As of now, Bharat has had good films in hand. He smiles and smartens up, I am lucky to get a good break in films. We make choices, and the key is to make the most of the opportunities in our lives and take time out for people in our lives. That's true success.
