Sharath Chandru to be launched as a hero
The film will be directed by Vinay Bharadwaj, who recently made the music video, Kanasa Kande, starring Mukyamanti Chandru’s son and Hitha Chandrashekar.
Sharath Chandru is usually recognised as actor-politician, Mukyamantri Chandru’s son. The upcoming talent, who kicked off his career in cinema with a small role in Ranna, also plays an important character in The Villain. The actor is now going to be launched as a full fledged hero.
This will be the first feature film for Vinay Bharadwaj, an international host, who has done two short films. The two were recently in the news for the music video named Kanasa Kande. Conceptualised and directed by Vinay, a Kannadiga living in Singapore for fourteen years, the video also stars Hitha Chandrashekar. Made in the 90s style of blending music with a story, the track brings to life the 12th century Saint and Poet Akka Mahadevi’s Vachana in the form of a song with a contemporary take on corporate couple, love and relationships. Kanasa Kande has been composed by Ayyo Rama and sung by Inchara Rao.
Vinay’s first feature film will be a romcom, which will feature two heroines. Along with Sharath as the hero, the makers have brought Hitha Chandrashekar on board as one of the female lead and the search for the other heroine is still underway.
The filmmaker, who is shuttling between Singapore and India, will be back in Bengaluru on March 20, at which time he will start with the pre-production work for the film. Meanwhile, Sharath is working on his physique in order to look his part as the hero.
