Gangadhar, who acted in over 80 films, was introduced to the tinsel world by the late film director, Putanna Kanagal, in Gejje Pooje, which was based on M.K. Indira's novel which dealt with the problems of prostitutes.
Among Gangadhar's important films were Sharapanjara, Nanna Tamma, Bhale Adrushtavo Adrushta, and Aliya - Geleya. He won several awards including the Rajyotsva Award.
