Remember Karisma Kapoor’s co-star Harish Kumar from ‘Prem Qaidi’. There was a time when the films of this actor went hit at the box office. But suddenly, something happened that this actor became anonymous.
Harish Kumar was one of the famous actor of 90s. He has acted in a total of 280 films.
Harish started his career as a child actor. He is the only male child actor to have worked in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil Kannada and Malayalam films. For the film Andhra Kesari, he won the state award for the best child actor of the year 1983 from the Chief Minister Late N. T. Rama Rao.
Harish acted as a lead at a young age of 15. His first film as a lead actor was Daisy, a Malayalam film directed by Prathap K. Pothan. The movie also starred Kamal Hassan. In Tamil, he was introduced by T. Rajendar as a lead in the film Pookal Vidum Thudel, directed by Sridhar Rajan.
Harish appeared in many Malayalam films but after appearing in many films he couldn’t make his mark and than he debut in bollywood. He has appeared along with Govinda also in several films.
But later on, Harish Kumar’s fate changed so much that his stardom started fluctuating and then he disappeared from the movies.
Inteqam which was released in 2001 was his last film. The actor who once ruled the hearts of all as a chocolate boy, became quite fat because of which he changed completely. But, the passion of acting has not ended.
Harish Kumar tried to make a comeback in Bollywood after almost a decade in 2011, but did not succeed. He was last seen in Chaar Din Ki Chandni in 2012.
