At the age of eight, Tarun embarked on his acting journey with Ushakiran Movies, earning recognition for his performance in the Tamil film “Ani” by Mani Ratnam in 1990, alongside co-stars Shamili and Shruti. Additionally, he contributed to the Telugu television serial “Wonder Boy” for Eenadu TV. Following his film appearances, Tarun took a seven-year hiatus to pursue graduate studies, though he remained active in television commercials directed by Rajiv Menon. His notable achievements include winning the Nandi Award for Best Child Actor for “Manasu Mamatha” (1990), “Pillalu Diddina Kapuram” (1991), and “Teja” (1992).

Beyond his acting endeavors, Tarun is an accomplished cricketer, actively participating in the Indian Celebrity Cricket League. His filmography includes roles in “Aditya 369” (1991), Malayalam films such as “Abhayam” (1991), “My Dear Muthachan” (1992), “Johny” (1993), and the Tamil film “Meera” (1992). Notably, he serves as the brand ambassador for the Telangana T20 League cricket team, Medak Mavericks.


Tarun has earned notable recognition, including the National Film Award and three state Nandi Awards for his contributions. Following a break, he ventured into commercials for Spinz Talc and Fanta alongside Richa Pallod. His standout performance in Mani Ratnam’s “Anjali,” India’s official entry to the 1991 Oscars, secured him the National Film Award for Best Child Artist. The film also earned the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Telugu that year, while Tarun received the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut – South.

Apart from his film career, Tarun actively participates in his family business and is involved in other entrepreneurial pursuits. Despite a setback with the film “Bhale Dongalu” (2008), a remake of “Bunty Aur Babli,” he remains determined for a comeback. After a four-year hiatus, he returned with “Chukkalanti Ammayi Chakkanaina Abbayi” (2013), which received mixed reviews. Subsequent releases like “Yuddham” (2014), “Veta” (2014), and “Idi Naa Love Story” (2018) had low-key releases and faced challenges at the box office. Nonetheless, Tarun continues to strive for success in his cinematic endeavors.
