Career

Tarak began his career as a child actor and dancer. His first step into Tollywood was with the movie "Bala Ramayanam", directed by Gunasekhar. He made his first film after he grew older, Ninnu Choodalani, in 2001, but it failed to perform well at the box office. He went on to gain fame with Student No. 1 (also released in 2001), directed by S.S. Rajamouli, followed by Subbu and Aadi. In January 2003, Tarak's film Naaga performed poorly. However, in July 2003 Simhadri became the highest grossing film of the year in Tollywood, and made Tarak and director Rajamouli household names.
His first release of 2004, Andhrawala, flopped at the box office, though the next film, Samba, did better, and was at the top of the box office for fifty days. In 2005 his two releases, Naa Alludu and Narasimhudu, flopped again at the box office. In 2006, his film Ashok had a good opening, but did not appease his fans.

His film Rakhi, which proved a success at the box office, has gained Tarak good reviews. The film was directed by Krishna Vamsi, and co-stars Ileana D'Cruz and Charmme Kaur. His latest film Yamadonga was released on August 15, 2007 and is the sensational movie of the year 2007.
