Nandamuri Kalyan Ram (born 5 July 1978), is an Indian actor and film producer who works in Telugu cinema. He was born to actor and politician Nandamuri Harikrishna and Lakshmi. He is a grandson of N. T. Rama Rao, who was an actor and politician. His younger brother, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, is also an actor. Ram is best known for his roles in action films such as Athanokkade, Hare Ram and 118. Ram is the owner of the production company N. T. R. Arts, named after his grandfather. He also owns "Advitha Creative Studios", a video effects company, which provided special effects for movies such as Legend, Nannaku Prematho and Krishnashtami.
Ram started his acting career in 2003 with Toli Choopulone followed by Abhimanyu, which were both commercial failures. In 2005, he established his own banner N.T.R. Arts under the name of his grandfather N. T. Rama Rao known as 'NTR'. He then produced Athanokkade, which introduced Surender Reddy as a director, and it was a critical and commercial success. His next films Asadhyudu, Vijayadasami and Lakshmi Kalyanam bombed at the box office. However, his 2008 release Hare Ram became a critical and commercial success. His 2009 release Jayeebhava and 2010 release Kalyanram Kathi emerged as commercial failures. In 2013, Ram produced and starred in Om 3D which was touted as India's first 3D action film and was released in late summer[when?] 2013. Despite the hype, the film ended up as a commercial failure.
In 2015, Ram starred in Pataas which turned out to be a blockbuster with positive reviews. For the first time, he produced a film without himself as the lead, titled Kick 2 under N.T.R. Arts. It stars Ravi Teja as a lead, and is directed by Surender Reddy, which turned out to be a flop at the box office. Ram's later release for 2015 featuring him as the lead was Sher opposite actress Sonal Chauhan. It was directed by Mallikarjun and was produced by Vijayalakshmi Pictures.
In 2016, Ram produced and starred in Puri Jagannadh's Ism as an undercover journalist. In 2018, he acted the lead role in the film MLA and Naa Nuvve. In 2019, he played the role of his father Nandamuri Harikrishna in the films N.T.R: Kathanayakudu and N.T.R: Mahanayakudu. He then proceeded to star in K. V. Guhan's 118 along with Shalini Pandey and Nivetha Thomas. The film became a critical and commercial success.
