Ananth Nag is an Indian film actor, who has appeared in Tamil and Malayalam language films. After making his acting debut in the Tamil version of Alphonse Putharen's Neram (2013), he has gone on to act in films including Amara Kaaviyam (2014) and Premam (2015).


Ananth Nag graduated with a bachelor's degree from Sri Venkateswara College of Engineering and started out working as a software engineer. His strong inclination towards arts led him pursue a cinematography course at Mindscreen Film Institute run by Rajiv Menon, and followed it up by photography lessons from Dinesh Kumble. Ananth continued to work as an assistant cinematographer for films and short films and met director Alphonse Putharen through his work. He subsequently went on to feature in a cameo role in Putharen's first film Neram (2013) as well as a series of short films titled Enna Solla Pogirai, Enna Solla Varenna and Jai Jakkama, where Ananth starred as a protagonist.[1][2]

Ananth then portrayed the antagonist in Amara Kaaviyam (2014), appearing as a school boy who vies for the attention of his friend's lover. Putharen cast him in Premam (2015) as Arivazhagan, the cousin of Sai Pallavi's character, while he was later seen as Sasikumar's brother in Vetrivel (2016).[3][4]
