A project in the combination of Powerstar Pawan Kalyan and director Harish Shankar, Bhavadeeyudu Bhagat Singh, was announced long back. Harish was very excited and eager to start the project asap.
Earlier, reports came out that the film would go on the floors in August but considering the political commitments of Pawan Kalyan from October 1st week; the film has very few chances of kick-starting anytime soon.
Meanwhile, there are speculations that in the meantime, Harish Shankar might plan to go ahead with some other hero for his next. But no top star would agree to do a Harish Shankar film at this point in time.
Allu Arjun gave him a chance, but he couldn’t utilize it and delivered an average DJ. He also delivered a disaster with NTR with Ramayya Vastavaiya. If Harish has to start a project, he has to approach only tier-2 heroes like Varun Tej, Sai Dharam Tej, Ram, or Ravi Teja.
Pawan Kalyan is the only star who agreed to do a film with him because of the Gabbar Singh factor and also because PK is someone who is not very choosy about the directors, unlike other star heroes.
So, Harish Shankar has no other option but to wait for Pawan Kalyan. There are also chances that Harish might have to sit at home for a few months or even years because Pawan has gone completely into the election mode, and he might be available only after the 2024 elections.
