Vasishta N. Simha an actor who is primarily seen in Kannada films. He was born on 19th October 1988 in Bangalore and was raised in this city only. He is a singer as well apart from being an actor. He did his schooling from Sharada Vilas School in Mysore and later went to Sadvidhya School in the same city. He got the chance to work with Hamsalekha who is the music legend from South and thus shifted to Bangalore to make his career in music. He then completed his graduation while working with the music icon from National College, Basavangudi. However, after completing his graduation, he started working as software engineer keeping music still his part-time thing.
But he knew he could not sail in two boats together, hence gave up his software engineer job to take a plunge into the Kannada film industry trying his luck in acting. He soon got the chance to be the part of the film called Hubballi Hudagaru, but was unfortunate to see the movie releasing due to some technical reasons. He did not give up and got the chance in another film called Arya’s Love, which turned out to be his debut film releasing in 2013. However, his first main lead role was only possible with the other movie called Raja Huli released the same year 2013. It was a remake of one of the Tamil movie titled Sundarapandian release one year before. He played the main antagonist in it.
He then got the chance to play in the movie called Rudra Tandava released in 2014, which remained the remake of the Tamil film called Pandiya Naadu. He then got the chance to be the part of the trilingual film called JK wherein he is playing a pivotal role in. The film is releasing this December. Some of his other movies, which are releasing in the coming future include Kalachakra, Kavacha and Mayabazar. As far as awards are concerned, he bagged a few awards including Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor – Kannada, SIIMA Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role, and IIFA Utsavam Award for Best Actor In a Negative Role-Kannada.
As said, he is also a singer, he has given his voice for the songs like Neecha Sullu Sutho Naalige (Kirik Party), Marete Hodenu (unplugged for Dayavittu Gamanisi) and this year he had Neechamaina (Kirrak Party) and 6ne Maili ( the Title song from 6ne Ma).
