Ganesh Venkatram is now father to a baby boy. The Varisu actor and his wife, television actress Nisha Venkat recently welcomed their second child. The duo are already parents to Samaira, their first-born.

Ganesh drops an adorable post to make the announcement
The actor dropped a picture of the baby boy along with the rest of the family, and wrote, "As u wrap ur lil fingers around my hand A high within me, I may nevr fully understand..Cos d roles I hv playd in life may be many But that of a 'Father' is uncomparable to any..Welcome to our world, Nisha & Me r blessd wit a baby Boy ths Morng. tnk u all fr ur luv n prayers (sic)." Congratulations have been pouring in for the duo.

Ganesh and Nisha tied the knot in November 2015, in a typical traditional wedding. They got engaged earlier that year.

Ganesh has a slew of projects lined up
The model-turned-actor was last seen in Red Sandalwood, which was directed by Guru Ramanujam. The plot is said to have been influenced by a real-life incident about a crime syndicate dealing with red sandalwood which led to the loss of many workers. The actor teamed up with Garuda Ram, MS Bhaskar, Vetri and Rama Chandra Raju. The film, however, did not set the box office on fire.

Last noticeable role in Varisu
Ganesh played a character with shades of grey in Varisu. He was seen as the conniving financier Mukesh in the film, which was directed by Vamsi Paidipally and had Vijay in the lead. Talking to OTTplay about working with Thalapathy, Ganesh had said, "Vijay sir is a sweetheart. The way he bonded with my family, especially Samaira, was amazing. During the shoot of Varisu, I noticed that he does not use his phone on the set. He asked me to observe what was happening on the set and I am now continuing the practice." Ganesh also has in his kitty, Un Paarvaiyil, Sabari and The Door.
