Adharvaa - Profiles of Cine Artist

Adharvaa Murali is an Indian film actor. He is best known for being the son of late actor Murali. In 2009, his father found him an offer to play the lead role in a film to be produced by Sathya Jyothi Films and directed by Badri Venkatesh. Titled Baana Kaathadi, the film launched in March 2009 and had Adharvaa pair up with Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The film, which also had Murali making a special appearance, released on August 6, 2010 to positive reviews. A month after the film's release, tragedy struck Adharvaa as his father, Murali, deceased of a heart attack.

Budding actor Adharva of 'Baana Kathaadi' fame has been roped in by ace director Bala for the latter's next venture in Tamil! Kollywood grapevine is abuzz that Adharva received a call from Bala who requested him to come to his office. Bala reportedly questioned Adharva on his future projects and told him not to commit to any director as of now as the duo will be making a film! An overwhelmed Adharva gave his nod immediately!

Actor Atharvaa debuted in Tamil filmdom with 'Baana Kaathadi.' Though the film was not a huge success, he is convinced that it was a good launchpad for him and believes his second movie -- 'Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal' (MUK) is the best that could have happened to him at this. Adharva is currently busy with Muppozhudum Un Karpanaigal, directed by Ganesh (associate of Tharun Gopi). This bilingual and will be released in Telugu as Nirantharam Nee Voohale. The movie has music by G V Prakash and playing the female lead is Amala Paul.

Year later, his next release was Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal where he played a youngster suffering from hallunication, film did well and his performance was well received.
