Subsequently, he marked his appearance in many videos of VIVA called The Interview by Sabarish Kandregula (2013), The Big Fat Proposal (2016), and the series of Viva News.
In an interview, Shanmukh disclosed that soon after functioning with VIVA, he detected himself classified as an unconscious and foolish questioner. He told,
After VIVA, I got a few offers where my character was restricted to that of VIVA which didn’t interest me. I am looking for a meaty role.”

- In 2017, he attracted controversy when a complaint was lodged against Jaswanth and his girlfriend Deepthi Sunaina for the short-film Sita, I Am Not A Virgin. Ostensively, the reason behind the complaint was the title of the film that prompted the displeasure of the Hindu group. In Hinduism, Sita is a deity and one of the fundamental particulars of the Hindu saga Ramayana, hence, using the expression I am not a Virgin in the title harm the feelings of Hindus. While talking about the haters, Shanmukh told,
Whatever is happening is ridiculous. Our aim was to send out a message. It is a bold subject, but there’s nothing controversial like people are making it out to be. Sita is just the name of a character, and the film has nothing to do with the Ramayana. Without watching the film, assumptions are being made based on the title.”
Afterwards, the title was replaced with Seetha I’m Not A Virgin to remove the allegations.
