Before entering into the film industry he worked in various fields such as textiles, electronics, poultry, consumer products, etc. He was an ardent Rajini fan right from the beginning.

Later, he got introduced to ‘Disco’ Shanthi while working on the movie “Nallavan” and worked as a part-time Manager for her, that made his career in the film industry. He then began his work as a P.R.O and Director Rajashekar gave him a chance to be his P.R Manager and also an opportunity to work as a P.R.O in one of his movies ,’Pudhu Varisu’ starring Pandiarajan and Rohini. He also runs a fan club for Superstar Rajinikanth in Chepauk , through which he got contacts of many celebrities during his initial days.
Later, he worked as an individual P.R.O for the movie ‘Enga Ooru Mariyamma’. It was produced by K.Rajan and he continuously worked for three films with the same producer and production house ‘Deivaanai Movies’ in films like ‘Pudhu Pudhu Raagangal’, ‘Archana IAS’ and a couple of movies. He also worked in a lot of small projects and with God’s grace, he got an opportunity to work in Superstar’s own production house for the movie ‘Valli’ in the year 1993. It was the biggest turning point as a P.R.O, in a career spanning three years. Next, he worked with Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan in ‘Chandamama Production House’ for the movie ‘Nammavar’ in the year 1994. In the late 90’s , he slowly shifted his career to Celebrity Management.

In the year 1990, he produced ‘O Podu’ , the Tamil-dubbed version of the Telugu movie ‘Seema Simham’ starring Nandamuri Balakrishna, Simran and Reema Sen. The film gave him a big break, so he decided to enter into direct production. He produced his own movie ‘Thathi Thavadhu Manasu’ with new faces and Mumtaz, Vadivelu and Kalabhavan Mani in supporting roles. Due to the poor response he got for the film, he faced a downfall in his career.
