Abhishek, son of star couple the late Ambareesh and Sumalatha, is making his debut with the Kannada film Amar. Directed by Chetan Kumar, the film features Tanya Hope as the lead opposite Abhishek. The film’s title is a tribute to Ambareesh’s original name, Amarnath, and the movie Hongkongnalli Agent Amar in which the veteran starred in 1989.

With the film reaching the final stages of shooting, the makers are planning an April release to cash in on the long summer holiday season.

Recently the young debutant took part in filming some fight sequences in a mall in Bengaluru. Major portions of the second half have been shot in Switzerland, while the rest have been shot locally. The hit number ‘Olavina Udugore Kodalenu... Rakuthade Baradenu Ida Nannu’ from Ambareesh’s 1987 film Olavina Udugore is being recreated and was shot in picturesque locations in Switzerland.

The trailer of the film was released along with the Darshan starrer Yajamana. Both the lead actors in the film, Abhishek and Tanya Hope, appear to be motorsport enthusiasts and the crux of the story will revolve around that. It may be recalled here that they underwent training in motorsports before the shooting began to fit into the characters they play.

Speaking about his role in the film, Abhishek had said in an interview much earlier, “I am passionate about motorsports in general. Bike racing is new and I am excited about this. I have been meeting experts and rallyists and understanding what it is to be on the track. I’m working on my body language and understanding. We plan on keeping it as real as possible and I’m planning on shooting for most of it, except maybe a few dangerous stunts, which might have doubles.”

Amar is being bankrolled under the banner Sandesh Productions by Sandesh Nagaraj, who is one of Ambareesh’s best friends. Amar’s technical crew comprises Arjun Janya for composing music, Satya Hegde to crank the camera and Sania Sardhariya to design the costumes.
