Born and bought up in Hyderabad, Jr NTR began his acting career as a child actor and dancer.
He made his entry into Tollywood playing the role of Lord Rama in the movie 'Bala Ramayanam'.
The movie 'Bal Ramayanam' was directed by Gunasekhar in the year 1996.
His second movie titled 'Ninnu Choodalani' was directed by VR Pratap in 2006.
The second attempt with 'Ninnu Choodalani' failed to click at the box office.
He struck the right chord among the audience with films such as 'Student No.1', 'Subbu', and 'Aadi'.
The young actor got a jolt again in his acting career when the film 'Naaga' released in 2003 fared poorly.
The actor's patience and consistent attempts for a blockbuster paid off with SS Rajamouli again coming to the rescue with 'Yamadonga' released on August 15, 2007 becoming a sensational movie.
In July 2003 his film 'Simhadri' directed by Rajamouli went on to become the highest grosser in that year in Tollywood.

After watching his new film, the late legendary actor Shoban Babu said Junior NTR is his favourite actor having done everything to impress the different sections of the society.
The actor has won the Santosham Best Young Performer Award in the year 2003 for the film 'Simhadri' and the MAA TV Best Actor Award in the year 2008 for the film 'Kantri' directed by Mehar Ramesh, which is also doing very well in the theatres.
'Dammu', Junior NTR's Telugu film, was released in 150 screens in Karnataka.
After giving two unsuccessful films at the box-office, Jr NTR's 'Dammu' was expected to turn the tide for the actor.
Jr. NTR plays a larger than life role in 'Dammu' and his dynamic performance, action and dialogues are the mainstay of the film.
Junior NTR, a popular Telugu film actor and grandson of Telugu matinee idol and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N T Rama Rao, revived memories of his grandfather as he launched the campaign of the main opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in the state.
NTR was a bit worried when Dammu generated a so-called 'divide talk' on the first day. By the sixth day, the film collected Rs 31 crore.
The success of Simhadri made NTR famously give a pompous statement. He openly expressed his wish to become the Numero Uno of Tollywood. Chiranjeevi, who was still the reigning star, was apparently his target.
Severe injuries sustained in a road accident could not stop him from campaigning in Andhra Pradesh for his grandfather's party TDP.
We wish him a Happy Birthday and success in life.
Jr NTR, one of the most famous actors of Tollywood, is celebrating his 24th birthday today.
'Baadshah' is his upcoming Telugu flick.
Grandson of the late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, a great actor and former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, the young actor is fondly called Tarak by his family and friends.
