Another version of the bio...
 
Guruprasad Ramachandra Sharma is an actor, producer, director, and screenplay writer based in Bengaluru, Karnataka. He was born on 2 November 1972 in Kanakapura, Bengaluru, Karnataka. He predominantly works in the Kannada film industry. He is married to Aarathi K.N.  Guru made his debut in 2006 with the film Mata as a director and actor. It was a dark comedy film that primarily revolved around the events which occurred within contemporary matha/mutts, which are considered as one of the most sacred institutions of India.
The film gracefully depicts that human enlightenment can be achieved only if emotions such as lust, anger, desire, etc. are controlled. The leading cast of the film included Jaggesh, R. N.

After this movie, Guruprasad became popular and rose to fame in the Kannada film industry.
 
After the success of this film, Guruprasad collaborated again with Jaggesh in their next movie called Eddelu Manjunatha, which was released in early 2009. The film was about the life and times of a jobless and lazy middle-aged character called Manjunatha (Manja), who believes that his life is an eventual existence instead of being deserving, practical, and a capable one. The film portrays the procrastinating attitude of Manja not as a quality but as something imbibed by him through his general ideas, thoughts, and notions that surround him in everyday life.
 
However, in the subsequent years, his personality becomes pragmatic and he begins to think that there are always alternative sources to live your life rather than complying with how the world goes like a puppet, and there are so many methods to earn money, unlike the linear methods of gaining success. The movie turned out to be a major success and it earned Guru a Filmfare Award for Best Director in 2010. 
 
Guru worked as a director in different other movies such as Director's Special, Eradane Sala, Ademaa, and Ranganayaka. As an actor, he acted in various films such as Eddelu Manjunatha, Kal Manja, Mylari, Hudugaru, Director's Special, Whistle, Karodpathi, Jigarthanda, Ananthu Vs Nusrath Click to look into! >> Read More... , Kushka, Badava Rascal, and Body God.
