For quite a while, there were reports that star couple Ambareesh and Sumalatha’s son Abhishek would be making his acting debut. The star kid is keen on following the footsteps of his parents and has expressed his desire to act. But there was no clarity over who would direct the film.

Pawan Wadyar and Chethan Kumar were in the recokoning to direct the film but eventually Pawan went on to direct Puneeth Rajkumar in Nata Sarvabhowma and this film started to roll recently.

According to reports, Chethan Kumar also decided to opt out of the project as he wasn’t comfortable directing a film penned by another writer. Following this, Abhishek’s debut film ran into trouble. However, things have been sorted out now with news coming that Nagashekar has been roped in to direct the film.

As reported earlier, Sandesh will be bankrolling the venture under his banner Sandesh Productions.

Director Nagashekar has films such as Myna (2013), Sanju Weds Geetha (2011) and Aramane (2008) to his credit till date. Abhishek is keen on making his debut soon and has undergone training in acting, dance and martial arts. With varying reports about his debut flick coming up and two directors walking out of the project for reasons best known to them, the makers of this star kid’s debut film will be releasing an official statement about the project once things are finalised, say sources.

It may be mentioned here that Abhishek’s parents, Ambareesh and Sumalatha, are veteran actors with several prestigious awards to their credit. Both Ambareesh and Sumalatha have acted in a number of Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi films in their career spanning over four decades now. Ambareesh currently has two Kannada films - Ambi Ning Vayassaytho and Kurukshetra – lined up for release this year.
