He first appeared on screen in 'Namma Makkalu' in 1969. Chandrasekhar had acted in 'Edakllu Guddadamele' directed by Puttanna Kanagal in 1973. The movie brought him recognition in Kannada film industry.

Also, he shared screen space with Shiva Rajkumar in 'Shaivalingu' and with Darshan Thoogudeepa in 'Chakravarthy'.

In 20014, Chandrashekar directed a Kannada movie- 'Poorvapara' which captures the emotions of a helpless mother who tries her best to win back her son who leads a busy lifestyle in America. 'Poorvapara' became the first Kannada movie to be screened at Toronto Film Festival.

Sandalwood mourned the death of Chandrashekhar. This is the second loss to Kannada film industry this year. Actor-director Kashinath passed away last week in Bengaluru.
