12 years ago, Kannada actor Sharan made the transition from supporting artiste/comedian to leading man with Rambo. In the time since, he has done a string of solo hero projects, all of which, however, never strayed from his strength – comedy. No matter the genre, all his films have a healthy dose of humour, which, he says, fans have come to expect of him.
