Director Harish Shanker, who started off his career with Shock, starring Ravi Teja and Jyothika, is now the most sought after director in Tollywood. His movie Gabbar Singh created a new opening day box-office record in the Telugu film industry and finds itself among the top record-breakers at the national level too.
Self-confessed Power Star fan
He calls himself more of a Pawan Kalyan fan than a director. I have seen Khushi, Tholi Prema and Thammudu more than 30 times in a theatre and I still cannot get over his style, says Harish Shanker who is living his dream of directing his childhood hero in Gabbar Singh and basking in the glory. Back in my college days at MNR College, I used to recite his dialogues in his style and dance like him. He was like the youth icon for all of us. The way he dressed and the way he carried himself was just amazing, he recalls.
