Kishore Kumar G (born 14 August 1974),[1][2] credited as Kishore, is an Indian film actor, born in Karnataka who has worked in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam cinema.

Early life[edit]

Kishore was a student of (AU) National College, Bangalore, where he started off with theatre doing plays in Kannada such as Teregalu and Samrata Ashoka.[2] He then did his masters in Kannada literature from Bangalore University. He took up teaching in a college in Bangalore[3] where he worked for two years and then as a part-time fashion designer worked under fashion designer Vidyasagar, a professor from National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT).

Career[edit]

Kishore made his film debut in the 2004 Kannada film Kanti, acting as Byaadara Beera. He got a role in the film after having been identified initially to design costumes for the film and eventually went on to win a State award for his role in it.[3] For his role in the film Raakshasa, he won the Karnataka State Award for Best Supporting Actor.[3] 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.[4][5] In the same year, he appeared in a low-budget film Jatta in which played the role of a forest guard. In 2013 he was also in the Tamil films Haridas as a police officer raising his autistic kid and makes him an athlete and Arrambam where he also played a cop.

In 2014, he appeared in Ulidavaru Kandanthe, playing the role of Munna, another role that won him praise[vague] from critics.[6]

In 2015, Kishore got his Tamil movie "Thilagar" released. Kishore's acting in the movie was praised[vague] by critics though the movie was not very successful at the box office.[7]
