Gurunadhan's thirteen-year-long wait will come to an end this week as his dream project, Missing Boy is hitting the screens this Friday. The actor, who was impressed by a crime story which was telecasted in 2003, managed to get the program CD  from writer Chandra Barkor, and he was longing to convert it into a film. Finally, things fell in place in 2014 when he met director Raghuram, who had a similar vision. 

The film, produced by Kolla Praveen, explores the real-life story of a missing boy named Jonathan and an inspector named Lavakumar. Raghuram says it’s a subject close to reality, and retaining the same essence during its making was a tough task.

“When it comes to real-life incidents, there are certain restrictions in the screenplay. Moreover, I had an agreement with the inspector, who insisted that I not deviate from the subject,” says Raghuram. 

Apart from Gurunandan, the cast includes of the film includes actors like Archana Jayakrishnan, Rangayana Raghu, and Ravi Shankar Gowda. Missing Boy has music by V Harikrishna and cinematography by Jagadish Wali.
