CareerEdit

Naveen made his debut movie in Telugu with the movie "Sambhavami Yuge Yuge" in the year 2006. Later he acted in the movie Kalyanam. Chandra made his debut as a hero in Agarathi, a Tamil movie which did not do well. In 2012, he starred in the Telugu movie Andala Rakshasi which garnered him good response from viewers and professionals for his performance and won him rave reviews for enacting a passionate lover Surya in the film.[3]

In the bilingual films Dalam and Koottam, Naveen played an ex-naxalite who struggles to return to a normal life. The Telugu version released in 2013, while the Tamil version released in early 2014. For his role in Sathyashiva's Sivappu, he lived incognito as a labourer in his friend's construction company for two weeks in order to get into his character. The film also released in 2014, as did a third film Therodum Veedhiyile, which he had shot for in 2012.[4] He was also signed as the second lead in the Tamil film Brahman, which will become his first acclaimed release in Tamil, since his first movie was not a commercially successful film that did no justice for his acting abilities. He has also signed on for the lead role in producer C. V. Kumar's Sarabam.[5][6]
