He succeeded to the throne through the influence of the chief minister, Tirumalaiyangar. During his reign, his delavayi (chief of the army), who was also named Kanthirava, led an expedition to subdue Chik Ballapur, but was killed during the fighting. His son later took over and succeeded in establishing Mysore's suzerainty.
