BIOGRAPHY

Best known for films like Dilwala and Tirupati Express, Sumanth Shailendra is an Indian actor and the son of veteran Kannada film producer Shailendra Babu. Sumanth made his debut with Aata (2011). The film was a disaster and many in the industry had written him off as an actor. Instead of signing new projects, he decided to take a break and joined the reputed Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute to polish his acting skills. After that, he signed his second film Dilwala (2013) helmed by Anil Kumar. The film opened to mixed reviews from the critics and had a decent run at the box office. In 2014, he was seen in Tirupati Express, the remake of Telugu film Venkatadri Express featuring Sundeep Kishan and Rakul Preet Singh in the lead. Like the original film, Tirupati Express was also a profitable venture. Some of his other notable films are Bettanagere (2015), Bhale Jodi (2016), and Lee (2017). The actor will be making his Telugu debut with Brand Babu (2018), directed by Prabhakar Podakandla of Next Nuvve fame.
