There, he was a student of The National College, which is famed for being established by well-known educationalist H Narasimhaiah. During his school days, he met a relative Mr. Ramesh Rao, who was a screenplay writer. Thus, he started spending a lot of time on different movie sets & came across many interesting people. When he was 16, he was spotted by a camera man Mr. Sundernath Suvarna, and was offered a role by him in the movie “Marikannu Horimyaage.” The role required him to play the heroin’s brother’s role and his screen time was around 10-15 minutes. This small yet worthy experience was very enriching for Tejaswi. He was offered his second role in the movie “Aryabhata” with
Ramesh Aravind and Late Soundarya. In the movie, he asked by Ramesh Aravind himself to play the role of his brother. While working for this movie, he found his calling in acting and decided to make it his profession.
Therefore, instead of continuing his studies, he went on to pursue acting.
