Bharat married Jesslie, a Dubai-based dentist, on 9 September. His wife was introduced through a common friend one year ago. Initially, they started out as friends but later fell in love with each other. With blessings from their parents, the duo tied the knot last week on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.

Bharath began his acting career in Tamil with Shankar's "Boys", a film that revolves around four friends. Initially, the actor appeared in multi-starrers but became a bankable star after the success of "Kadhal" in 2004. Since then, Bharath has starred in numerous Tamil films that were critically acclaimed and commercially successful.  

The actor's newly-released film "555" has also come in for critical appreciation. He will be next seen in Tamil film titled "Killadi", Hindi film "Jackpot" and Malayalam film "Koothra."
