MUMBAI: Yash, originally named Naveen, was born in Karnataka to a bus driver father and homemaker mother. His passion for acting led him to Bengaluru with Rs 300 in hand at the age of 16. Despite facing initial struggles, Yash persevered and started his career as an assistant director and later as a theatre actor, earning Rs 50 per day.

His breakthrough came with the lead role in the play Gokul Nilkamala in 2004. Alongside his theatre work, Yash ventured into television with shows like Uttarayana, Nanda Gokula, Malebillu, and Preeti Illada Mele. In 2007, he made his film debut with Jambada Hudugi, followed by impactful roles in Moggina Manasu and Rocky.

Yash's career took a turn with the 2009 film Kallara Santhe, where he played an auto-rickshaw driver, even driving an auto-rickshaw for a day as part of the film's promotion. His subsequent films Lucky, Jaanu, Google, and Mr. and Mrs. Ramachari cemented his position as a leading actor in Kannada cinema.
