After supporting roles in a string of movies like Gowri (2004), Yuvasena (2004), Shankar Dada MBBS (2004), and Sankranti (2005), Sharwanand rose to prominence through his portrayal of the antagonist in the 2005 romantic drama Vennela, and the mentally challenged protagonist in the 2006 family drama Amma Cheppindi. His next film was Classmates (2007), which was a remake of the Malayalam film of the same name. Though it failed at the box office, the movie was well-received by critics.

In 2008, Sharwanand got his first big break when his road drama Gamyam became a critical and commercial success. The movie, which won four Filmfare South Awards and numerous other accolades, was remade in Tamil as Kadhalna Summa Illai (2009) and in Bengali as Dui Prithibhi (2010). The former was Sharwanand`s first Tamil movie, and though it didn`t fare well at the box office, the movie made him a familiar face among the Tamil audience. The political thriller Prasthanam and the family drama Andari Bandhuvaya, both of which were released in 2010, garnered positive reviews and were dubbed into Tamil following their box office success, reaffirming his growing popularity in Tollywood and Kollywood.

The romantic drama Engaeyum Eppothum (2011) was a turning point in the actor`s career. The movie, which swept the box office and the awards season, earned Sharwanand the Best Debutant Award at the South Indian International Movie Awards (SIIMA). In 2012, Sharwanand turned producer for the first time with the movie Ko Antey Koti.

The Romantic Drama Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju was the actor`s second outing in 2015 and reunited him with his Rajadhi Raja co-star Nithya Menen. The film was a reasonable box office success.
