Legendary singer Padmashree Hariharan’s younger son Karan is all set to make his debut in Bollywood with write-director Abhishek Jawkar’s upcoming crime thriller Missing On A Weekend.
Karan Hariharan, who completed his acting course from Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, LA, will be playing the crucial character of Laksh in the film.
Actor Pawan Malhotra will also be seen sharing space with Karan investigating the twisted case of murder mystery in the film.
In an attempt to highlight the recent crime scenes that have tarnished the safety factor of holidaying in India’s tourism capital, Goa, the movie promises to nudge viewers on an exciting spree. Versatile actor Pawan Malhotra essays the role of a top cop from CBI to investigate the case of a group of friends partying away the weekend in Goa. Laksh is found unconscious in Calangute beach and has lost his memory due to brutal head injury, one friend is found dead in a room and the other friends go missing.
The film also marks the launchpad of Hariharan’s elder son Akshay as music director. Alongwith Akshay Hariharan, versatile singer Shaan is making a comeback as music composer with this film while ‘Jabra Fan’ singer Nakash Aziz is also doing the background music of the film in his debut as music composer.
Missing On A Weekend is producer Abhishek Jawkar’s first film, who is making his foray into mainstream Hindi cinema as a Director after successful stints as a film distributor down south and having directed documentaries.
Speaking about realizing his dream to direct films, Abhishek says, “10 years of experience in a film business, and sticking around through all the struggle, instilled in me the aspiration to become a director. At an early age I found that getting a producer for your film was not easy so I decided to produce it myself, but I was lucky enough to found Adept films (jointly producing the film) and finally don the Director’s hat!”
The 48 hours of investigation thriller is slated for a monsoon release.
