His entrance into TV industry was entirely unplanned. He wasn’t excessively enthused about acting, yet when he went to meet a companion on the arrangements of Chanakya, a TV serial, that used to be circulated on Doordarshan, the executive requested that Prabhakar recount a couple lines and he was very awed. That is the manner by which everything started. The greatest defining moment in his profession, in any case, was the TV serial Ruthuragalu, which was a major hit. At that point there was a long break before the following enormous thing,” he says. Meanwhile, he named for almost 60 newcomers in films, aside from any semblance of Aryan Rajesh, Abbas, Prabhu Dheva and Uday Kiran.
His decision not to go back to his native place seemed to pay off and after he was appointed as the Creative Manager at ETV by Suman, the then managing director of ETV group, he introduced several TV shows like Yahoo, Star War and Smile Raja Smile. Then there was a rough patch. It really was a tough time and he didn’t want to be held responsible for what was happening. Back then, he didn’t make money because he was doing everything out of friendship with Suman and he realised that once I quit my job. Besides, he was branded as ‘ETV Prabhakar’ and it took him a long time to come over that tag.
