His acting career reached its peak with the movie Rajadhiraju in which he acted as Satan. The movie became very popular due to his acting and the song "Kotta devudandi babu kotta devudandi", which is still popular today. Prasad, although he acted with all the generation of heroes, was particularly popular with the second generation heroes. Movies like Patnam Vachina Pativratalu, Khaidi (Village munsab), Magamaharaju, Srivariki Premalekha, Kathanayakudu, and Aha Naa Pellanta, all continued his winning streak.

In 1989, while shooting for the film Bamma Maata Bangaru Baata, he had an accident and broke his back. This left him paralysed from the waist down and he had to use a wheelchair. He then quit acting in movies. Once in a while he appeared in guest roles. He also did voiceover and commentary for serials and movies. He dubbed for late Gummadi Venkateswara Rao in Aayanaki Iddaru (1995) as the artiste had issues with his voice at that time. Later on, Nutan Prasad became the narrator of the hit crime reality show in ETV-2 Neralu Ghoralu. He was quite appreciated by the Telugu TV audience for his part in Neralu Ghoralu.
