By the time he turned 10, he had already started playing cricket. During one of his trials, Mr. J. Krishna Rao, his coach, saw his talent and guided him later. When Bharat was 12 years old, Rao asked him for wicket-keeping as his reflexes were so impressive at that little age.

He has played Under 13 to the Under 19 cricket team for Andhra Pradesh.
