Considering his rich family background, Taraka Ratna’s career is painfully dull. Except for one or two movies, none of his films could make a mark on the audience. Adding insult to injury some of the movies are disappearing with out a trace after 1 day of their release. His next movie, Mike Testing 143 is ready for release for a long time but could not see the light. Anticipating the change of fate, the makers of the movie changed the title of the film as ‘Drama’.

Taraka Ratna won the best performance Nandi award for his role in Amaravathi. Nandamuri fans are hoping that he does roles of such sort and get good name in such characters instead of wasting his prime in doing movies as hero and getting humiliated.
