Personal life[edit]

His father Kota Seetha Rama Anjaneyulu was a doctor. He initially aimed to become a doctor but eventually couldn't make it because of his love towards acting. He initially started his career in stage and drama plays during his college days. He is a bachelor of science graduate and worked as a State Bank employee before entering the film industry. He is married to Rukmini and has three children (2 daughters and a son). He lost his son Kota Venkata Anjaneya Prasad on 20 June 2010 in a road accident in Hyderabad.[11]

Kota Prasad acted in J. D. Chakravarthy's flick Siddham and alongside his father in Gaayam 2 (2010). His acting was critically acclaimed. His younger brother Kota Sankara Rao is also an actor. He works in a nationalised bank and acts in soap operas.[12]
