A wise artist once said, "An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it's going to launch you into something great."
There are two types of people. One, who fall apart during hard times. Second, the ones who stand still, stay brave and fight it all out. And the story I am about to share with you is that of a man who didn't give up during the hard times. He kept himself together and decided to start all over again.
Meet Prabhakar Sharan, a Bihari actor who is now a rising star in Latin American film industry. But things were not always a bed of roses, yet he struggled hard for everything he is today.
So come, let's read how a Bihari guy from India is now a superstar in Costa Rica.
Prabhakar Sharan was born to Prabhunath Sharan and Subhadra Prasad in Patna, Bihar. His parents are retired bankers from Motihari district of Bihar. He completed his education and then went to Costa Rica for further studies.
After landing in Costa Rica as a student in 2000, Prabhakar started a chain of Indian clothing and restaurants. He also brought Bollywood style movies to Costa Rican theatres, and Monster Truck programmes from the U.S, but it didn't work out well.
In 2010, he came back to India. After returning, he found things in his life start falling apart, he even gave divorce to his wife.
There, he shot his first Bollywood-style movie in Spanish"Enredados: la confusion" (Entangled: The Confusion). The movie is made in a typical dhamaka with action, songs and dance.
In the movie, Prabhakar plays the lead role along with a famous Costa Rican television hostess, Nancy Dobles. Ex-world wrestling superstar and Hollywood actor, Scott Steiner also plays a lead role in the movie. It has been produced by Costa Rica-based Pacific Investment Corporation.
Prabhakar has intentions to deliver his baby project in English, Hindi and Bhojpuri as "Ek Chor, Do Mastikhor" in March-April.
According to Jose Castro, film commissioner Costa Rica, it is the first Costa Rican movie to have such a powerful composition and entertain people at the same time.
"This movie is not a just a movie for theatre it has become a milestone to Latin movie industry for the new difference and changes by its style," Prabhakar told PTI.
He has now become a successful businessman but his passion for cinema is still the same. His upcoming movie "Borders without Life" is based on the people who risk their lives to come to the U.S.
Many renowned people from Latin America praised Prabhakar Sharan for his involvement and work in the industry. He is an inspiration to all those who want to give up. Just focus and work hard. Things will get better only if one takes an initiative.
We wish you all the very best for your future, Prabhakar Sharan.
