Ravi Krishna (born 2 March 1983) is an Indian actor who works in the Tamil and Telugu film industries. Son of noted producer A. M. Rathnam, he made his acting debut in Selvaraghavan's critically acclaimed 7G Rainbow Colony.
Ravi Krishna's debut film 7G Rainbow Colony, directed by Selvaraghavan and produced by his father, was a high critical as well as commercial success, with his performance fetching him the South Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut of that year, amongst other minor awards. Its dubbed Telugu version 7G Brindavan Colony was equally successful, being declared a "super hit". Ravi Krishna, before starting to shoot for the film, took a one month-training in acting at the Film Institue in King's College London. Following that, he acted in S. A. Chandrasekhar's Sukran, sharing screen space with fellow actor Vijay, the Radha Mohan-directed family drama Ponniyin Selvan, and the action-masala flick Kedi, under his brother Jyothi Krishna's direction. The films, all notably produced by his father, received mixed reviews and did average business at the box office. His first direct Telugu venture Brahmanandam Drama Company, too, was a box office bomb, with Ravi Krishna lamenting that the film failed to succeed due to poor budgeting and publicity. His next release was the bilingual Netru Indru Naalai / Ninna Nedu Repu that was critically acclaimed. In 2009, he starred in Kadhalna Summa Illai, a remake of the Telugu film Gamyam got him success in box office again. The film and his performance were highly appreciated by the critics. Aaranya Kaandam, which had been in making for over two years, is his most recent release. Termed as the first neo-noir film in Tamil cinema, the film opened to high critical praise.
