He went to United States to do his engineering degree.

His career took big break after his blockbuster hit Satyam in 2003 opposite Genelia D’Souza and Kota Srinivasa Rao. Satyam was Genelia D’Souza’s Telugu debut. His subsequent movie Gowri starring Charmme Kaur and Atul Kulkarni was also a box office hit. Sumanth established himself firmly in Tollywood after the Godavari in 2006 starring Kamalinee Mukherjee and Neetu Chandra.
