Hrishikesh is an Indian actor with mesmerising black eyes and fair complexion. Born in Chennai, he did his schooling from Padam Sheshadri Wala Bhavan and college from Madras University. After completing the course of visual communication, Hrishikesh moved on to his film career.
He works as an actor and an assistant director. Legends ‘
Rajinikanth’ and ‘

After working for one-and-a-half year in ads, he got the happy news that he may get a chance to move on to a higher level and his life would be on track.
One message from ‘
Dhanush’ changed his whole life. He had a look test for Dhanush’s new production named ‘
VIP’. VIP, Velai Illa Pttathari, is a Tamil film and Hrishikesh starred as a young brother in the movie. To act with two national winners, Dhanush and
Saranya Ponvannan, was a great opportunity for him.
Hrishikesh’s great-grandfather, ‘K. Subramanyam’, is considered a pioneer in Tamil cinema, and has been a big inspiration for him. He was an average student in his school days but was sure about his future that he wanted to become an actor. Always been a first-day-first-show person, anything related to film excited him. Due to his visual communication course, he was able to devote a lot of time to films.
While talking with The Hindu, he said, “We did quite short films. I starred and directed in psych thriller subject named ‘Shadows’, a story about a person with multiple spilt personality disorder. I also did another movie named Post Hangover.” His currently released project VIP has been a great opportunity for him where he worked with Dhanush and ‘
Velraj’ Sir. After establishing himself as a successful actor, Hrishikesh wants to dabble with direction in future.
