Back in the early 90s, Venkat Prabhu had wanted to be a successful music director. But over the years, only a portion of the dream stays unaltered, but the agenda has changed altogether, fetching him more glory than he had dreamt of.
After having acquired a degree in music from Trinity College of Music, London, Venkat Prabhu set out on musical tours with his band, Next Generation, which has performed on a number of stage shows. After a few dead-end trials to be launched as a hero in Kollywood, Venkat found his break in silver screen in ‘April Maadhathil’ in a supportive role.
But he finally discovered his calling in direction only in 2007, when his trademark project ‘Chennai 600028’ hit the screens. And then there was no turning back. Although he has directed only four projects so far, it is worth mentioning that all four of them are box office blockbusters. Currently helming ‘Biriyani’ starring Karthi and Hansika in the lead, director Venkat Prabhu clocks windup of 38 years in his life. And we at Tamilwire.net wish the promising director a very happy birthday!
