Aadhi Pinisetty (born 14 December 1982) is an Indian actor who appears in Tamil and Telugu films. He is the recipient of a Nandi Award and a SIIMA Award, in addition to two nominations for Filmfare Awards South.

Born to film director Ravi Raja Pinisetty, he debuted in 2006 with the Telugu film Oka V Chitram. He got his big break with the Tamil film Eeram (2009), produced by director S. Shankar.[1]

Early life[edit]

Aadhi Pinishetty was born on 15 December 1982 in a Telugu-speaking family.[2] His father, Ravi Raja Pinisetty has directed over 50 films.[3] He grew up in Chennai and was schooled at Don Bosco.[4][5]


Pinnishetty made his debut in 2006 with the Teja-directed Oka V Chitram.[6] He later appeared in the Tamil film Mirugam (2007). In 2009, he starred in the supernatural thriller Eeram. In 2010, he had two releases, Ayyanar and Aadu Puli, which were commercial films and were average grossers, building his commercial value well despite the negative reviews.[7]

He has been portrayed in negative roles for high-budget film, Kochadaiyaan and the successful film, Sarrainodu, for which he got critical acclaim, with one reviewer commenting that Aadhi’s screen presence elevates the film. [8]

In 2017, he starred in the thriller Maragadha Naanayam, which turned out to be a surprise box office success. The same year he starred in the Telugu romantic-drama film Ninnu Kori, alongside Nani. His portrayal as Arun in the latter was well reviewed by one reviewer.[9]
