The film also marked the actor’s foray into production with his Ladoo Cinema House
Nine years ago, Kannada actor Sharan made the transition from comedian and character artiste to solo hero with his 100thfilm, Rambo. Directed by MS Sreenath, the film also marked Sharan’s foray into film production with his Ladoo Cinema House, with Atlanta Nagendra pitching in as co-producer. The film paired Sharan with Madhuri Itagi and had Sadhu Kokila, Rangayana Raghu and Tabla Nani in pivotal roles.
Rambo, which was written by actor Tharun Sudhir, was a box-office success and there has been no looking back since for Sharan, who has, since, done at least 14 other films as hero, including films like Victory, Victory 2 and Rambo 2. Sharan has always been conscious of the fact that comedy is his forte, and the actor has not let it go, even with protagonist roles, blending humour with other genres in an entertaining fashion – something he strives to better with each film.
For the actor, who is currently awaiting the release of his next, Avatara Purusha and is working on Guru Shishyaru, Rambo was not only about turning hero. It was also about forging long-lasting professional relationships with people like Tharun Sudhir and composer Arjun Janya, among others.
In his social media post to commemorate the occasion, the actor wrote, “Today marks nine years since Rambo released on the screen on September 7, 2012. It will forever be an unforgettable day in my life, which proved to be a big turn in my career. Rambo gave a new dimension to my life. Thank you for showering your love on Rambo and consistently supporting me throughout. Blessed to have started this journey with wonderful makers like Tharun Sudhir, Atlanta Nagendra and the entire team. Nothing would have been possible without such a great team and all your blessings! Extremely overwhelmed,” he wrote.
