Career

edit

Sirish made his lead debut with the Telugu–Tamil bilingual film Gouravam (2013) opposite Yami Gautam, produced by Prakash Raj and directed by Radha Mohan.[2] Though a commercial failure, it managed to have a fair share of reviews from critics for its theme. Kotha Janta (2014), a romantic comedy directed by Maruthi was about two different minded co-workers falling in love and the drama that ensues.[3] It was the 3rd most watched Telugu movie of the year through satellite screening, which is quite a feat for a small budget film.[4] Srirasthu Subhamastu (2016), directed by Parasuram, was a love story with family drama.[5] The film got positive talk from morning shows. It was a hit at the box office and went on to collect 20.2 crores during its run.[6] He was announced as the second lead opposite Mohanlal in 1971: Beyond Borders (2017), directed by Major Ravi, making this his debut in Malayalam.[7] He received good reviews from Behindwoods and Kochi times stating that "Sirish is decent and satisfactory".[8][9] In 2017, he starred in the film Okka Kshanam, which was a sci-fi thriller based on the concept of parallel lives.[10] The film was critically acclaimed.[11][12] In 2019, He starred in the film ABCD – American Born Confused Desi, which was a Telugu remake of the Malayalam film with the same name, starring Dulquer Salmaan. The film was a story of a rich spoilt brat who gets kicked out of his house and finds it hard to reform. He was admired for his performance.[13]

He was given the "Crossover Star of the Year" award at the Lulu Fashion Awards in 2019 for his Malayalam entry.[14]

His next appearance was in 2022, in the movie Oorvasivo Rakshasivo, opposite to Anu Emmanuel.[15]
