Fortunately, Kaushal's first film- Sri Sai Mahima- was a story based on the divine Sai Baba. Kaushal was grateful to have acted as Sai Baba's nephew in the film.
His second role itself was a major one as Mahesh Babu's friend in the film Rajukumarudu. From then the graphline of his acting career only seemed to reach heights as he acted in 82 films.
On people's demand, he also took up roles in television dramas. His first ever TV serial was Chakravakam. His role as Sagar brought him the 'Best Debut Actor' and 'Best Villain' awards. Later, he continued doing serials like 'Devatha,' and 'Radhika.' In the serial 'Radhika' he acted along the lead film star Mrs. Radhika Sarath Kumar Garu.
