Directing Power Star Pawan kalyan is a dream come true and Harish Shankar realised it in a big way. Harish Shankar speaking about it, said, he got the golden opportunity to direct Pawan Kalyan thanks to ‘Mirapakay’. He said he first narrated ‘Mirapakay’ story to Pawan kalyan and though he loved the script and was confident that the film would be a big hit, he couldn’t star in the film. The film turned out to be a hit with Raviteja as hero. Pawan at once gave chance to Harish Shankar to direct ‘Gabbar Singh’ which turned out to be a blockbuster.
