Sharwanand is one actor who never hesitates to experiment. When his contemporaries are keen on delivering mass masalas and entertainers, he works on films supporting some social cause and carrying inherent message.
Myneni Sharwanand is the youngest of three children of a Hyderabad based businessman, MRV Prasad Rao. He is also a cousin of actor Ram Pothineni. Sharwa went to school in Hyderabad and completed his B.Com from Wesley’s.
At the age of 17, he went to Mumbai and trained himself in dance and acting.
Sharwanand always nursed the idea of becoming an actor since his childhood. During his B.Com days, he was selected in The Hindu’s Best New Face contest and it paved way for his modeling and filmy career. He first rose to fame after he appeared in Thumbs Up commercial along Chiranjeevi. He first donned the grease paint in Telugu with 5va Tareeku in 2003. Later, he went to play several supporting roles. Prominent of them are with Chiranjeevi in Shankar Dada M.B.B.S. and Venkatesh in Sankranthi and Lakshmi.
He acted in a Psycho role in Vennela and mentally impaired boy in Amma Cheppindhi. Both these roles changed his destiny and earned him a good name. Later he went on to make several award-winning flicks like Gamyam, Andari Banduvaya and Prasthanam. He made for a mark himself and people started waiting for his movies. But sadly none of them worked commercially except Gamyam. He even tried his luck as producer for his Ko Ante Koti movie but only to fail.
Sharwanand went on to act in Tamil and Malayalam film industry too. He entered the Tamil land with Kadhalna Summa Illai, remake of Gamyam which went on to become a big hit there. His subsequent movies, Naalai Namadhe directed by Vinayan and Engeyum Eppodhum were big hits too and he successfully found a place in the hearts of Tamil people. In 2014, after a long wait of several years, Sharwanand managed his first commercial hit with Run Raja Run directed by a new comer Sujith.
