Nandamuri Kalyan Ram is an Indian actor and film producer who works in Telugu cinema. He was born to actor and politician Nandamuri Harikrishna and Lakshmi. He is one of the grandsons of N. T. Rama Rao, who was an actor and a statesman. Actor Jr.NTR is his Brother. He is the owner of the production company named after his grandfather late NTR, called N.T.R. Arts. He had played a lead role in several movies like Athanokkade, Hare Ram and Pataas.[3]


Kalyan Ram started his career as an actor with Toli Choopulone (2003) produced by Ramoji Rao. His next movie was Abhimanyu (2004) produced by Ashwini Dutt. Starting his film career with two failures did not dampen his spirits.

In 2005 he established his own banner, N.T.R. Arts, under the name of his legendary grandfather NTR[4] and produced Athanokkade introducing Surender Reddy as director. Kalyan Ram startled the film industry and the audience alike with this movie. It was a runaway hit at the box office. His next movie, Asadhyudu (2006), was a disaster. His next ventures Vijayadasami with Samudra and Lakshmi Kalyanam with Teja did not work. However, Hare Ram under his own production proved him as actor and was well received by critics and was a good success for him after "Athanokkade". In 2009 he starred in Jayeebhava which was a flop. In 2010 he starred in KalyanRam 'Kathi' which turned out as an average film from his banner. After a long gap Om 3D produced on his home banner, which was touted as India's first action 3D film released in late summer 2013.[5] Despite the hype the film ended up as a failure at the box office.[6]

In 2015, Kalyan Ram appeared as a cop in an action entertainer titled Pataas produced under his home banner which turned out to be a blockbuster hit with positive reviews.[7] For the first time he produced a movie without him as the lead titled Kick 2, under his banner N.T.R. Arts. It stars Ravi Teja as a lead, and is directed by Surender Reddy, which turned out to be a flop at boxoffice.[8] Kalyan Ram's later release for 2015 featuring him as lead is Sher, opposite actress Sonal Chauhan. Sher is directed by Mallikarjun and is produced by Vijayalakshmi Pictures banner.[9]

His latest venture is titled Ism under the direction of Puri Jagannadh with Kalyan Ram playing the lead role of Reporter Balakrishna. It is being produced on N. T. R. Arts banner by Kalyan Ram like many of his previous movies. The first look featuring Kalyan Ram was released on 4 July on the occasion of Kalyan Ram's birthday on 5 July.[10] It is scheduled for release on 29 September 2016.
