Prakash Raj was born to a Tuluva Bunt family in Puttur (near Mangalore), Karnataka,on Mar 26,1965. Now he has shifted his base to Chennai and Hyderabad due to numerous offers from Telugu and Tamil films.Prakash Raj studied in St.Josephs Indian High School in Bangalore. He won the Presidents Scout award in 1982. He later joined St. Josephs College of commerce, Brigade road, Bangalore, where he participated in many plays, most of which were in Kannada.

He has acted in Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi films. His original name Prakash Rai in Kannada screen was rechristened to Prakash Raj by K. Balachander for Prakash Rajs debut movie Duet as during that time there was tension between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu over Cauvery river. K. Balachander had doubts about Tamil audience accepting a Kannada actor in a prominent role.

Prakash Raj began his acting career with Kannada Doordarshan serials like Bisilu Kudure and Guddada Bhootha. He later took up small supporting roles in kannada films like Raamachari, Nishkarsha, Lockup Death and etc and was noticed for his dialogue delivery and histrionics. His breakthrough role came in form of Harakeya Kuri starring Vishnuvardhan and Geetha, directed by K S L Swamy. His performance in the movie was noticed by Geetha and she in turn introduced him to her mentor, the noted director K. Balachander. Prakash Raj re-entered Kannada films with a bang through Nagamandala in 1997, directed by T.S. Nagabharana which was selected for Indian Panorama in the International Film Festival 1997.

Prakash Raj is a very famous actor in South India for a wide variety of roles he has performed, most notably as a villain and of late, as a character artiste, in Tamil and Telugu.
