Titled "Araam Aravind Swamy," this project will mark the third directorial of Abhishek, who made his debut with "Nam Gani B’Com Pass." The scripting of "Araam Aravind Swamy" was completed during the lockdown, and Abhishek, who has penned the story, screenplay, and dialogues of the project has also decided to play the lead in this film.

"Gajanana and Gang," starring Shri Mahadev and Aditi Prabhudeva, was supposed to hit the screens on February 4, but the makers pushed the release due to the pandemic, and the theatre occupancy restrictions.
On the acting front, Abhishek, who has played a pivotal role in his own directorial, Gajanana and Gang, has also starred in Vinayak Joshi’s Kathanayaka.
