Tiger Prabhakar (Kannada: ಟೈಗರ್ ಪ್ರಭಾಕರ್; 30 March 1950 – 25 March 2001), also known as Kannada Prabhakar, was an Indian film actor known for his works predominantly in Kannada and Telugu cinema, with a few Malayalam, Tamil and Bollywood films. He is known for his villainous roles.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Prabhakar started his film career by appearing in a negative role[3] in small-budget movies. His first film was Kaadina Rahasya. As his career progressed, he acted in stunt, action, and thriller movies. After he fought with a real Tiger in the movie "HULLI HEJJAI " ,, His fans started calling Him "Tiger Prabhakar " ..

After gaining recognition, he went on to act in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, and Malayalam movies. He appeared in around 450 movies. His natural acting in many of Chiranjeevi's films as villain earned him the name "Kannada Prabhakar".

He produced films like Mahendra Varma and Mister Mahesh kumar. It was his own banner produced by Him.Both films were box-office hits. In the mid-1980s Prabhakar was the most popular and demanded actor from all producers. He acted in number of emotional, family-oriented movies with top heroines like Aarthi, Manjula, Bhavya, etc. He'd played the role of a criminal Anil Raj in Amitabh Bachchan-Sridevi starrer Inquilaab. He acted in some Malayalam movies with actors such as Mammootty and Suresh Gopi.

Kanglish quotes[edit]

Prabhakar introduced Kanglish into Kannada movies.[3] Kanglish is a mix of Kannada and English dialogues. Many mimicry artists recite his Kanglish dialogues.

Personal life[edit]

Prabhakar was married thrice. He had two daughters Bharathi, Geetha and a son, actor Vinod from his first marriage. He then married actress Jaimala and had a daughter together, Soundarya. His third wife was another actress, Anju, with whom he had a son, Arjun. However, his latter two marriages ended in divorces. A philanthropist, he was known to have made donations to many charity organisations during his career as an actor. His political aspirations never took off.

Prabhakar had met with a bike accident in the mid-1980s, the injuries sustained from which took a toll on his health. Following this, in the early 2000s, he suffered from multiple organ dysfunction syndrome.[4] Owing to these illness, he died in Mallya Hospital in Bangalore at 9:45 p.m. on 25 March 2001.[5]
