One of the most famous of Venkat Prabhu’s films was “Poonjolai” (2001). The film was directed by Venkat Prabhu’s father, Gangai Amaren. However, the film was cancelled in the middle of production. The director tried to revive the project in the late 2000s, but the project was cancelled. In the meantime, other films were cancelled, including the sequel to Kadhal Samrajyam, and another version of Wanted. Several filmmakers approached him for supporting roles in these failed films, and he eventually made his first release, April Maadhathil in 2002. He has since made more than a dozen movies, including Sivakasi, which starred Vijay and Ajith Kumar.

After a successful debut with “Poorboy”, Venkat Prabhu’s career has continued to grow, with films including Chennai 600028, his directorial debut, and the acclaimed comedy-drama, Saroja (2008). His filmography is varied and diverse, and includes the movies Premgi, Saroja, and Gnabagam Varuthey. It is no surprise that the actor has become one of the top producers in the industry, and continues to do so.
