Kishore made his film debut in the 2004 Kannada film Kanti, acting as Byaadara Beera.

For his role in the film Raakshasa, he won the Karnataka State Award for Best Supporting Actor. He played a tough elder brother of heroines in Akash and Kallarali Hoovagi. He was approached by director Vetrimaaran to work in Desiya Nedunchalai, as he was looking for an actor who could speak Tamil with a Kannada accent. The film was dropped, but he got a chance to act in Polladhavan. The film was a major success at the box office. His other roles include a no non-sense cop in Duniya, a Kabaddi coach in Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu and a forest brigand Veerappan in the 2013 film Attahasa. In the same year, he appeared in a low-budget film Jatta in which played the role of a forest guard.
