Kotha Bangaru Lokam Copied Scenes




J.D Chakravarthy is a film actor, of Tollywood films and director of Bollywood films, Darwaza Bandh Rakho, Durga and the story of an innocent man in jail in Darna Zaroori Hai.


J.D. Chakravarthy, born in 1964 and often called J.D. by close friends and known as Chakravarthi by the Telugu film audience, marked his debut in Ram Gopal Verma's debut blockbuster Shiva (film) as a fellow student named J.D. After that, he played a supporting role in a Malayalam film, Ennodishtam Koodamo, before devoting all his time to films under his mentor's, Ram Gopal Verma's direction and production. He starred in some telugu films directed and/or produced by Ram Gopal Verma before Satya, his first Hindi film as a hero and his most prominent role to date, blasted on screens in July 3rd, 1998. Satya was critically-acclaimed, though criticized for its gruesome depiction of violence. It was touted to be one of the most underrrated films in Bollywood history and Ram Gopal Verma's truest and finest masterpiece to date.


After Satya, he did a few Telugu films including 'Kasi' and 'Maa Pelliki Randi' which flopped miserably at the box office. His latest film as an actor was Vaastu Shastra (film), a horror film with Sushmita Sen which did moderately well at the box office in Hindi and was dubbed in Telugu like most of Verma's Bollywood productions. He also starred in his first Tamil film in 2002 in a supporting role of a Tamil Tiger fighter in Sri Lanka called Dhileepan, who fathers a little girl, in Mani Ratnam's award-winning masterpiece Kannathil Muthamittal.


* Apart from Durga, the Bollywood film that he produced, directed and starred in, all his other Hindi films have been produced and directed by Ram Gopal Verma.

* It's a little known fact that J.D is not his surname. He became known as J.D Chakravarthy due to his debut role as 'J.D' in Shiva(1989).

* He was only 25 when he made his debut as J.D in Shiva
