Personal background[edit]

Jithan is the brother of famous Award winning actor Jeeva and the third son of R. B. Choudary. His father is a Hindu of Marwari heritage born in Chennai to Marwari-speaking Rajasthani migrants to Tamil Nadu. His mother, Mahjabeen, is a Tamilian Muslim woman, also from Chennai. Although his mother is a Muslim, Choudary practices Hinduism along with his siblings. He attended Gill Adarsh Higher Secondary School in Royapettah, Chennai with Samuel and he completed his Business Administration degree from D.G. Vaishnav College. Choudary married Shilpa in February 2006 and became father to a baby girl named Toshna in January 2007.[1]

Film career[edit]

He first appeared in a Telugu Film titled Vidyardhi (2004). His first entry into the Tamil Film industry was with the film Jithan (2005), which was a box office super-hit, starring Sarath Kumar as an important character in the movie and also Pooja Umashankar.

He began to sign many films on a signing spree, but his latest three releases in 2006, Madhu, Jerry and Nee Venunda Chellam did not do as well as expected. His next film Madurai Veeran had success at the box office once again.

Ramesh teams up with Silambarasan for Osthi (2011), playing brother to the lead role in the Tamil version of Dabangg.[2]
