Ram Pothineni (Rām Pōthinēni; born on May 15, 1988) is an Indian film actor of the South Indian film industry.[2] He hails from Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh.

Personal life[edit]

Ram is the son of Murali Pothineni, the brother of noted film producer Ravi Kishore Pothineni, popularly known as Sravanthi Ravi Kishore.[3] He was born in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, but was brought up in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. He did his schooling at Chettinad Vidyashram and St.Johns School, Chennai.


Ram made his debut in 2006 with Devadasu and the film went on to become a blockbuster, running for 175 days in over a dozen centers.[4] His second film, Jagadam was directed by Sukumar. Though it did not do well at the box office, it received critical acclaim. He then appeared in Ready alongside Genelia D'Souza directed by Srinu Vaitla with the film becoming a huge success, prompting remakes into other Indian languages and catapulting him to the big league.[5] In 2009, he had two releases, Maska and Ganesh Just Ganesh, the latter was not successful at the box office. Maska had one of the biggest openings at the time, collecting over INR2.5 crores on the opening day and recovering its investment within the first week. In 2010, Ram had only one release, Rama Rama Krishna Krishna, produced by Dil Raju and directed by Srivaas. Ram's next film Kandireega was a big blockbuster of 2011 and Ram proved to be the man of the masses along with his lover boy image. His next latest release was Endhukante Premanta with Tamannaah, directed by Karunakaran and produced by Sravanthi Ravi Kishore. The movie was shot in the beautiful lavish locales with a huge budget but it turned out to be an average grosser.

In 2013, Ram had yet another release, Ongole Githa with Kriti Kharbanda directed by Bhaskar and produced by B.V.S.N. Prasad. The movie was released on February 1, 2013 was sold for a record price in Ram's career despite the result of his previous film. This film garnered a superb opening but couldn't live up to its hype. He next starred with Daggubati Venkatesh in Masala, the remake of the Hindi film Bol Bachchan which was directed by K. Vijaya Bhaskar and jointly produced by Sravanthi Ravi KIshore and Suresh Babu.[6] In 2014, a new film has been launched on 11th Jan ,2014 in the direction of Gopi Chand Malineni that will be produced by Paruchuri Kireeti on United Movies Banner .[7]
