Sharan’s connection with Avatar

The actor’s upcoming film, directed by Suni and produced by Pushkar Films, is titled Avatar Purusha, and it will feature him as a junior artiste

Suni's film with Sharan has a connection with the Hollywood blockbuster, Avatar. The upcoming entertainer not only bears a similarity with the 2009 film in terms of the title -- Avatar Purusha -- but also with respect to Sharan’s look.

Pushkar Films, which is producing this film, will officially reveal the poster on February 6, Sharan's birthday. Interestingly, a film titled Avatara Purusha, starring Ambareesh, was released 30 years ago. This title has been reused for Sharan’s film because the makers felt that it was apt, says producer Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah. He also reveals that the film takes a leaf from the Mahabharata.

Along with Sharan’s look, the team will also reveal his character, which we’re told is that of a junior artiste. Director Suni explains, “The hero is a junior artiste, and will be one among the crowd. He has many roles to play, and will be seen in many looks. The different shades of him also relates to his own life. The title, Avatar Purusha, blends with the story.”

The film, a comedic entertainer, will be shot primarily in Chickmagalur. According to director Suni, it will go on floors on February 11, before which they will finalise the rest of the cast. “Extensive research has gone into the film. Avatar Purusha will see an element of Trishanku and the slogan Aswathama Hatha Kunjaraha..., which adds a valuable point in our film,” he adds.

On the technical front, Avatar Purusha will have Charan Raj scoring the music and William David handling the camera.
