Jeeva is an Indian film actor who appears in villain roles in Telugu, Tamil and occasionally in Hindi movies. Jeeva began the career as a villain and appeared in many superhit movies during the 1970s. However, by the mid-90s, there was a drastic plummet in his career and went back to his hometown as the offers were on the decline.

Jeeva’s career took a U-turn after director Krishna Vamshi spotted him and offered the role of a broker in his directorial debut Gulabi. Ever since his re-entry, Jeeva has become a busier artist and unlike early part of his career, Jeeva chose to play the characters with grey, comic and positive shades.

Some of Jeeva’s famous movies include Chakram, Ninne Pelladatha, Chandamama, Ashok, Swamy Ra Ra, Desamuduru, Chatrapathi, Anjaneyulu, Dhamarukam and Bujjigadu.
