Kannada actor Sharan’s next is a home production that is being directed by Jadeesha K Hampi, who made Gentleman with Prajwal Devaraj earlier. Nishvika Naidu, who worked with Jadeesha on Gentleman is the leading lady of Guru Shishyaru too.

A period drama set in the 90s, Guru Shishyaru has Sharan playing a sports coach and follows his conflicts with the youngsters on the kho-kho team that he’s training. The team auditioned over 450 child artistes for the roles, and while they picked a few newbies, the film will also introduce some star kids to Kannada cinema.

On board the cast are Sharan’s son Hruday, Ekanth (son of Nenapirali Prem), Rakshak (son of late Bullet Prakash), Suriya (Ravishankar Gowda’s son), Harshith (Naveen Krishna’s son) and Manikanta Nayak (son of MLA Raju Gowda).

Apart from Nishvika and Sharan, the film also stars Dattanna, Suresh Heblikar and Apurva Kasaravalli in pivotal roles. On the occasion of Guru Purnima last month, the team had announced that Guru Shishyaru will be a September release. Rumour has it that they have locked on September 16, a date that no other Kannada film has announced for release yet.

September 2 was supposed to be Jayathirtha’s Banaras, but it is now being said that the filmmaker will push his film ahead as Luckyman, the Darling Krishna film that has the late Puneeth Rajkumar in a vital role, is eyeing that date. September 9 has a couple of confirmed releases, namely Dhananjaya’s Once Upon a Time in Jamaligudda and Vinod Prabhakar’s Lankasura. September 16 is free as of now, as is the following week. The Dasara releases on September 30 are Dhruva Sarja’s Martin, Rishab Shetty’s Kantara and Jaggesh’s Thotapuri part 1.

Meanwhile, once Guru Shishyaru is released and Sharan removes the moustache he’d grown out for his role as a sports coach, the actor will resume work on Suni’s black magic comedy, Avatara Purusha Part 2 – Trishanku. Sharan is also committed to a horror comedy to be directed by Karva maker Navaneeth.
