J.D Chakravarthy is a film actor, of Tollywood films and director of Bollywood films, Darwaza Bandh Rakho, Durga and the story of an innocent man in jail in Darna Zaroori Hai.



J.D. Chakravarthy, born in 1970 in a Telugu Brahmin family studied in st Georges grammar school, Hyderabad is often called J.D. by close friends and known as Chakravarthi by the Telugu film audience, marked his debut in Ram Gopal Verma's debut blockbuster Shiva as a fellow student named J.D. After that, he played a supporting role in a Malayalam film, Ennodishtam Koodamo, before devoting all his time to films under his mentor's, Ram Gopal Verma's direction and production. He starred in some telugu films directed and/or produced by Ram Gopal Verma before Satya, his first Hindi film as a hero and his most prominent role to date, blasted on screens in 3 July 1998. Satya was critically-acclaimed, though criticized for its gruesome depiction of violence. It was touted to be one of the most underrated films in Bollywood history and Ram Gopal Verma's truest and finest masterpiece to date.


Even though his career started with "shiva" his talent has got recognition with "satya"in Telugu and Hindi as well. After Satya, he did a few Telugu films including 'Kasi' and 'Maa Pelliki Randi' which flopped miserably at the box office. His latest film as an actor was Vaastu Shastra, a horror film with Sushmita Sen which did moderately well at the box office in Hindi and was dubbed in Telugu like most of Verma's Bollywood productions. He also starred in his first Tamil film in 2002 in a supporting role of a Tamil Tiger fighter in Sri Lanka called Dhileepan, who fathers a little girl, in Mani Ratnam's award-winning masterpiece Kannathil Muthamittal.

Chakravarthy gets a new lease of life J.D. Chakravarthy has returned to Telugu film industry with Homam. His scintillating performance (dialogue delivery, acting and direction) in Homam has boosted his market value with producers and with his growing number of fans.

Homam’s success has brought him laurels as well as prestigious projects. Shankar has approached J.D. Chakravarthy to be the villain in his next magnum opus, Enthiran. JD, as he’s fondly known in the industry, has also bagged a role in director Vishnuvardhan’s Tamil film Sarvam, starring Arya and Trisha. Dil Raju, one of the most prominent producers.
