The son of former actor and Rajya Sabha member Rao Gopal Rao, Rao Ramesh has appeared in close to hundred films in the course of his career, mainly in supporting roles. He started out with a minor supporting role in Seema Simham (2002), but after failing to secure a foothold in the film industry, shifted his focus to tv shows. In the years that followed, Ramesh became a familiar face in Telugu and Tamil television courtesy of shows like Sudigundali, Pavitra Bandham and Kalavari Kodalu.
