Abishek to collaborate with director Suri for his second project?
Though there have been reports of Abishek teaming with a couple of directors, nothing had been officially confirmed
The latest buzz doing the rounds in the Kannada film industry is that Abishek Ambareesh is set to collaborate with director Suri for his next.
Abishek, who made his debut with Amar last year, has since been waiting to sign his next project. Though there had been reports of Abishek teaming with a couple of directors, nothing has been officially confirmed. Now, it seems he has used the lockdown time to freeze the kind of subject he wanted to take up and speculations of Abishek doing a film with Suri of Duniya fame have come to light.
The two apparently met recently at Abishek's residence after the lockdown was eased. This project could prove to be the big break Abishek is looking for.
Son of well-known actors Ambareesh and Sumalatha, Abishek is following in his parents' footsteps. Since Suri is known for giving a realistic treatment to his movies, it will be interesting to know the kind of subject he has sketched for Abishek.
On the other hand, Suri, one of the most sought-after directors in Kannada cinema, is best known for coming up with subjects that have a raw appeal. Having delivered a blockbuster with his first film, Duniya, starring Vijay, the director has worked with stars like Puneeth Rajkumar and Shivarajkumar, making films such as Jackie, Anna Bond, Kaddipudi, Doddmane Huduga and Tagaru. He has also given a break to many new talents.
The Kendasampige director’s last venture was Popcorn Monkey Tiger, which starred Dhananjay in the lead role. Suri's upcoming venture Kaage Bangara, starring Prashanth Siddi and Poornachandra Mysore, is currently in production.
