Before making his silver screen debut, Yash joined a drama troupe and trained hard to hone his skills as an actor.

A source close to the actor tells, "Yash's passion for acting and his hard work and dedication are what keeps him at the top."

The source further adds, "When he was young, he traveled to Bangalore to pursue his dreams and trained with a drama troupe called Benaka in 2003. Yash started with theatres and gradually made his way up the ladder, he did a lot of television serials before he made his film debut with Moggina Manasu, and from there, his career graph has grown exponentially. Eventually, Yash became a household name in the Kannada film industry and with the release of KGF, he's turned into a pan-India actor."
