Full Biography of Actor S. P. B. Charan

Sripathi Panditharadhyula Balasubrahmanyam Charan, popularly known as S. P. B. Charan, is an Indian film playback singer, actor, and producer known for his works primarily in Tamil Cinema.

Son of popular Indian singer S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, he first worked as a playback singer in the Tamil and Telugu cinema. He ventured into acting with the 2003 Kannada film Hudugigagi and is probably best known for his performance in the 2008 film, Saroja. He has established a film production company called Capital Film Works, and produced several Tamil films, including the cult hit Chennai 600028 in 2007 and the National Film Award-winning Aaranya Kaandam in 2012.

Charan was born to singer S. P. Balasubramanyam and his wife, Savitri in a Telugu Brahmin family and raised in Chennai. He has a sister, Pallavi. He received a degree in Bachelors in Business Administration from Pace University in New York, USA in 1997.

Charan first acted with his father in a film called Maha Yedabidangi directed by K. S. L. Swamy but the film did not release. In 1999 he starred in the television serial Oonjal produced by K. Balachander and directed by Sundar K. Vijayan, which was followed by Radan\'s Annamalai. He also starred in a TV serial named Bommaigal in Tamil and Akka Chellulu in Telugu. His first release was the Kannada film Hudugigagi in 2003 directed by B. Manjunath. In 2008 he played one of the lead roles in Venkat Prabhu\'s Saroja. On his performance, Sify wrote, \"S.P.B Charan as Jagapathy Babu suits the role and is fantastic\". He acted in Va in which he played shiva\'s prospective brother-in-law. He is currently action in two Tamil films Vanavarayan Vallavarayan  and Vizhithiru.

Charan established a film production company, Capital Film Works, in 2002. Their first production was the film Unnai Charanadainthen, in which Charan played the lead role, alongside his friend Venkat Prabhu. The film, which notably featured musical score by Charan\'s father, Balasubrahmanyam, received four Tamil Nadu State Film Awards. He further produced the Jayam Ravi-starrer Mazhai (2005), a remake of the Telugu film Varsham, which was a moderate success. His next production was Venkat Prabhu\'s directorial debut Chennai 600028 (2007), considered a trend-setting film that featured 11 newcomers in the lead and became one of 2007\'s biggest commercial as well as critical successes. In 2011 his sixth production, Aaranya Kaandam, was released to critical acclaim and became noted for getting 52 cuts by the regional Central Board of Film Certification. Although it did not achieve the expected box office success, Charan won a Swarna Kamal at the 59th National Film Awards as a producer of the film. His next production will be Thirudan Police by another debutant Caarthick Raju.

Charan began working as a playback singer in 1997 with \"Deepangal pesum\" from Devathai under Ilaiyaraaja\'s direction. About being the son of an icon, he stated; \"my voice sounds so much like appa, people might not want to use a similar voice. When SPB himself is rocking, why would composers need his clone?\" He has sung for composers A. R. Rahman and Devi Sri Prasad. Charan\'s most popular songs include \"Nagila Nagila\" from Alaipayuthey, \"Mellaga\" from Varsham, \"Nenu Nenuga Lene\" from Manmadhudu, \"I Love you Shailaja\" from Mazhai, \"Please Sir\" from Boys, \"Maaja Maaja\" from Jillunu Oru Kadhal, \"Oru Nanban Irundhal\" from Enakku 20 Unakku 18, \"O Shanti\" from Vaaranam Aayiram, \"Nee Naan\" from Mankatha. In 2010, he recorded a song on the Kadhal 2 Kalyanam soundtrack for Yuvan Shankar Raja and recorded with his father for the first time in Tamil for the film Aadukalam, for which they both won the Vijay Award for Best Male Playback Singer.

In 1996, he and childhood friends Venkat Prabhu and Premgi Amaren set up a music band called Next Generation which also had Yugendran and Thaman as members.

In September 2011, Sona Heiden pressed sexual assault charges against Charan after an encounter at a party. While on bail, he counter-sued for defamation. In a deal brokered by his father, the case was withdrawn after Charan made an apology. After his first marriage ended in divorce, he married again in early 2012. Charan underwent a notable weight loss in late 2010. In response to speculation, he stated it was in response to becoming health-conscious.
