The sports-drama, which will have Sharan's trademark humour too, is set in the mid 90s, so the team has been shooting in locations with sparse population to get the period look right.
It’s a wrap, finally, for actor Sharan’s Suni directed Avatara Purusha, a film that will be presented in two-parts for audiences. The film, produced by Pushkara Mallikarjunaiah, has been in production since February 2019, but was delayed several times owing to the pandemic, as well as the busy schedules of its leading pair, Sharan and Ashika Ranganath and director Suni, who’s also been making a film with Ganesh, #Sakkath, in the interim.
Although the team has been very tightlipped about the subject of Avatara Purusha, they have let slip that black magic is an important facet of the narrative. And given that this is a Sharan film, rest assured that there will be laughs galore along the way. The team, we hear, has finally wrapped up principal photography on the film, with the first part likely to release shortly after 100 per cent occupancy is restored in cinema halls. Pushkar had told OTTplay that the second part will be released three months after the first.
Meanwhile, Sharan, has wasted no time and has already taken off for another schedule of his next home production, Guru Shishyaru. Directed by Jadeshaa K Hampi, Guru Shishyaru is a film set in the 90s, in which Sharan plays a physical education teacher, with the narrative following the teacher-student dynamics. The team has been shooting in locations in the outskirts of Bengaluru and Mandya and on sets to get the look and feel of the mid 90s just right. In fact, Sharan is currently shooting for the film at a picturesque location, from where he posted an image of himself amid loads of greenery. When we reached out to the actor, he said that the team was shooting at a hillock where connectivity was limited and that he would return to Bengaluru by the end of the week. The actor is paired with Nishvika Naidu in the film, wherein she plays a village belle.
